Delaware County Employment Lawyer Discusses Being Sued for Discrimination as an Employer
As a Delaware County Employment Lawyer, I am often asked what to do if you are being sued for discrimination. If you are an employer in Pennsylvania, there are certain requirements that you must meet with protected class employees under state and federal law. You are not allowed to discriminate based on race, age, and gender. If you implement a discriminatory policy at your business, you can be held responsible if someone feels your policy is discriminatory. If you violate this law, the provision allows that person to bring a claim against you. If you terminate an employee because of age or gender, then you are potentially liable for compensation, like lost wages, loss of opportunity, and legals fees in pursuing the claim.
