Venues We Participate In
When a dispute cannot be resolved through assertive mediation or negotiations, we will represent you in the following venues:
- State and federal courts and labor board hearings, EEOC
- Workers’ compensation judges and appeals
- Unemployment compensating judges and appeal
- Social Security Administration hearings and appeals
Claims before an EEOC or administrative panel and union grievance committees, as well as Human Resource investigations, often carry significant consequences for employers and employees. Having an experienced litigation attorney assisting at every stage of the dispute resolution process often results in an amicable resolution in the appropriate case. It will also ensure a proper foundation for trial in either federal or state court.
Workers’ compensation claims, from both the defense and claimant perspective, require an experienced lawyer familiar with medical and legal issues involved. Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation laws are evolving; make sure your lawyer is up to the challenge.
No one enters an employment relationship anticipating a battle later on. Properly drafted employment contracts and policy manuals help to eliminate legal disputes down the road. Employers make sure you have a properly drafted agreement, and all parties know their legal rights before hiring, firing or disciplining employees, consultants and agents.
As an employee, be sure to understand your rights and options before entering into any legal agreement or accepting a job offer or termination, severance or retirement package.
