Practice Areas

Employment Discrimination

Abramson Employment Law represents clients in many areas of employment law. We frequently represent clients who are discriminated against at the workplace when their employment is terminated, or other adverse action is taken for pretextual reasons and the underlying reason for the employer’s action is protected by the law. For instance, employers are prohibited from terminating an employee based on the employers’ age, disability, sex, race, religion, national origin or the fact that the employee is pregnant. These laws also recognize that direct evidence of discrimination is not always present and an employee can prove employment discrimination based on indirect evidence. Federal and state discrimination laws also prohibit retaliation against an employee, which in the context of employment discrimination law is defined as action taken against an employee who makes a good faith report of discrimination. We also represent employees who suffer sexually harassment at the workplace, which can take many different forms.

Pennsylvania Employment Laws

At Abramson Employment Law we are frequently called upon to represent employees as they commence or end an employment relationship with an employer and are presented with documents that the employer requests that the employee sign. These documents include employment contracts, noncompete agreements (also known as, restrictive covenants) and severance agreements. Noncompete agreements place significant restrictions on an employee’s future employment prospects and are also sometimes are inserted into severance agreements. Execution of each of these documents places restrictions on what an employee may be able to do in the future. It is critical that before you sign any of these types of documents that you have an experienced employment law attorney review all relevant facts and the documents. There are also several Pennsylvania laws which provide protection to employees who are not timely paid wages and benefits, are not paid proper amounts or are denied employment for illegal reasons.

Federal Employment Laws

Federal employment laws also provide projections for employees. The Fair Labor Standard Act requires that many employees be paid overtime pay. Employees also receive protection for qualifying leave from work under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Other federal laws can also protect an employee at the workplace, or in some instances after employment is terminated.

Whistleblower Laws

Abramson Employment Law is frequently contacted by prospective clients who allege that they are whistleblowers. As a general matter, whistleblowing at the workplace involves an employee reporting certain illegal or unethical activity to an employer or outside agency; and the employer subsequently taking an adverse action against the employee (i.e. the termination of employment) because the employee reported the illegal or unethical workplace activity. Both federal and state laws provide certain protections for whistleblowers. Whistleblower claims are very fact specific, as there a number of whistleblower laws that apply to specific industries or conduct. In addition, in assessing a claim, it is critical to understand the nature of the specific illegal or unethical activity that is being reported and to whom the employee reports the activity.
