WHAT WE DO FOR EMPLOYEES

Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in the workplace are illegal. You have rights guaranteed by both state and federal law. If those rights are ever violated, then we are here to help. 

RMN's attorneys and represent clients from across Pennsylvania in litigation, contract negotiation, and unemployment appeals. When a dispute arises, your employer has knowledge and resources that you probably do not.

 

We make it a fair fight. 

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment in the workplace is unlawful. It can come in the form of unwanted sexual touching, jokes, or comments.

Race Discrimination 

Employers offer severance in exchange for you giving up your legal rights. Before you sign, you should make sure you aren't signing away a strong legal claim.

Disability Discrimination

When employees have a disability, the law requires employers to provide a reasonable accommodation. The law also prohibits retaliation against the disabled worker.

Gender Discrimination

The law requires employers to treat men and women equally. They are not allowed to use gender as a factor to make hiring, firing, promotion, or discipline decisions.

Age Discrimination

Older workers (over 40) are protected by the law because employers frequently target them for unfair treatment and termination.

FMLA RETALIATION

The Family and Medical Leave Act forces employers to provide 12 weeks of leave to employees when they or a loved one experiences a serious medical issue.

Retaliation

When an employee reports an unlawful practice or helps with an investigation, the employer is prohibited from retaliating against him or her.

Contract Review

Executive employment agreements, severance agreements, and non-compete agreements should all be reviewed by an employment lawyer before signing.

LGBT Discrimination

LGBT employees should not have to face discrimination, harassment, or bullying in the workplace.

Job Preservation

An employment lawyer may be able to stop a company from proceeding with imminent termination and instead win continued employment.

Severance Agreements

Employers offer severance in exchange for you giving up your legal rights. Before you sign, you should make sure you aren't signing away a strong legal claim.

Military Discrimination

USERRA is a federal law making it illegal for employers to discriminate in the workplace against military service members and veterans.

Non-Compete Agreements

Non-Compete or Non-Competition Agreements try to stop employees from leaving to work for a competitor. They may be enforceable, or they may be vulnerable to legal challenge.

Religious Discrimination

Employees in the United States have certain religious protections at work, and they cannot be discriminated against due to their religious beliefs and practices.

Unemployment Benefits

Most workers who lose a job are entitled to unemployment compensation benefits, but the process often involves appeals and legal arguments that a lawyer can help with.
