Philadelphia Employment Lawyers

Most Philadelphia residents, including those who work in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery County, spend approximately 8 hours per day at work Monday through Friday. In order to be as focused and productive as possible your work environment should be conducive to getting your daily tasks completed. Any type of emotional, physical or psychological discomfort due to being treated unfairly at work can negatively disrupt your performance.

Mr. Jensen and his associates handle employment law claims on a contingency fee basis meaning they charge no fee unless they recover for you.

While the United States does have federal working laws in place, each state, including the Commonwealth or Pennsylvania, will have specific guidelines for the state that may not always agree with federal laws. Anyone involved with an employee law case whether it is at a federal level or deals with state laws needs to have a qualified attorney, simply because these types of cases can get complicated very quickly. Many of the issues can involve:

  • Discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation
  • Retaliation in response to filing workers comp claims, speaking out against your employer, etc.
  • Sexual Harassment including male to female, female to male, female to female and male to male
  • Wage Collection including unpaid wages, tip pooling, unpaid overtime and unpaid vacation days
  • Wrongful Termination for any reason

It is often very difficult to pursue legal recourse against an employee, even with the types of legal services available to people today. Many times employers will have greater legal and financial resources than their disgruntled employees and people often give up their legal battle in a mess of red tape and frustration. However, never give up your rights but seek fairness in every pre-employment issue, training and background checks requirements and the benefits that you are entitled to by Pennsylvania and federal labor law. Fighting discrimination, sexual harassment or unfair hiring practices is tough, but not impossible as long as you have qualified legal representation. An experienced employment law attorney is able to act as your guide to the state and federal rights that belong to you and can help you seek justice.
