If you have been discriminated against because of your age, race, gender, religion, national origin or any other legally prohibited basis, you do not have to suffer in silence. Your right to work in a discrimination and harassment-free environment is protected by state and federal laws, and you should not need to fear retaliation for standing up for your rights. Philadelphia employment discrimination attorney Patrick Flanigan will help you determine if you have an employment discrimination law claim, and if so, he will fight hard on your behalf for lost wages, punitive damages and attorney’s fees.
If you have a mental or physical condition that prevents you from performing the essential functions of your job, your employer may be required to make a reasonable accommodation for you. This can include ergonomic adjustments, modified work hours or modified tasks. After you have notified your employer of your condition, your employer is required under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to engage in what is called an “interactive process” with you, determining the extent of your disability and the accommodation needed to allow you to perform your job. If your employer has failed to comply with the requirements of federal or state disability discrimination laws, you may be entitled to monetary damages and other remedies.
If you are seeking SSDI because you have a mental or physical disability that prevents you from working, turn to an experienced New Jersey and Pennsylvania Social Security Disability Insurance attorney to guide you through the legal process toward an effective resolution.
Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), your employer is required to grant you up to six months of unpaid time off to attend to your or a family member’s serious medical condition. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires your employer to fairly compensate you for your work, including overtime. If your employer has violated their obligations under either of these laws, we will help you obtain lost wages, damages, accrued benefits and any other remedies to which you are entitled.
