Know What Unlawful Discrimination Looks Like

Illegal discrimination comes in many shapes and forms. One of the most common forms we see in the Philadelphia, PA area is wrongful termination. This form of discrimination occurs when an employer fires you or lets you go because you belong to a certain religion, ethnicity, or other protected class.

It's possible that your employer may not state his or her real reasons for firing you, but if you suspect wrongful termination, a discrimination attorney can launch an investigation on your behalf.

Additionally, we have acted as civil rights attorney for those who suffer physical and verbal abuse at the workplace due to race or disability. We can also help you if you routinely have undesirable duties where other employees of different national origin but the same job title don’t.

Let Us Help You Handle the Complexities of Civil Rights Law

No matter what protected class you belong to, you have the law on your side. No employer, no matter how large, can discriminate against you. Similarly, your employer can’t deny you disability accommodation at the workplace if you need it. To learn more or to schedule a consultation at our Philadelphia, PA office, call us at 215-563-7776.
