Pittsburgh Lawyer for Employment Retaliation Claims

Pennsylvania Attorney Fighting Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Filing a complaint or grievance against your employer is an activity protected Retaliation by law. You cannot be retaliated against because you exercised your right to disagree with discriminatory practices. At my Pittsburgh law firm, I use my experience, knowledge and skill to help people who experienced retaliation only because they exercised their rights.

"[The EEOC enforces laws that] ... make it illegal to fire, demote, harass, or otherwise retaliate against people (applicants or employees) because they filed a charge of discrimination, because they complained to their employer or other covered entity about discrimination on the job, or because they participated in an employment discrimination proceeding (such as an investigation or lawsuit)." — U.S. EEOC website

As a lawyer with more than 15 years of experience, I fight for people who suffered retaliatory treatment such as:

  • Constructive discharge, or being forced to resign because of intolerable conditions. These "forced to resign" cases are very difficult. Please do NOT resign before consulting an attorney.
  • Demotion
  • Termination
  • Undesirable work assignments or schedules
  • Harassment or hostile work environment

I take the time to learn clients' stories and will even visit their homes in order to get to know them better. Having a complete picture of a client's life allows me to build a stronger case.

Fighting for My Clients' Constitutional and Civil Rights

I have helped individuals who were retaliated against because they complained about:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Employment discrimination based on age, race, ethnicity, disability or sex
  • Working conditions and schedules

I have been able to get their jobs restored if they were terminated and wanted to return. I have also successfully obtained damages for clients in payment for the losses they suffered as a result of the retaliatory treatment. I have taken on employers large and small in pursuit of justice for my clients.
