Bucks County Employment Lawyers

You know what working is hard.  Perhaps it’s even harder than you realized it would be when you graduated from school.

But your job shouldn’t be harder than it has to be.   

You have the right to a discrimination-free workplace.  You have the right to a harassment-free workplace.  And you have the right to a retaliation-free workplace.

Yet this doesn’t always happen. Your boss might harass you. You might possibly end up as the victim of discrimination. Or your boss might retaliate against you.

The Lacy Employment firm is here to assist.  As employment attorneys, we work to prevent unfair workplace practices.

There are numerous ways during which your employer might violate your rights. We are here to guard them.  

Bucks County Employment Attorneys Fight Discrimination

Discrimination may be a common workplace violation. It occurs when your employer negatively altes your employment status based on a protected characteristic.

Race, gender, sex, national origin,religion, and disability are common examples.

Altering your employment status, known as an adverse employment action, might consist of:

  • Termination
  • Demotion
  • Reassignment
  • Pay reduction
  • Reduction in job responsibilities

Most employees, supervisors, or managers, do not openly discriminate. Rather, it’s usually their conduct that’s discriminatory.

They have done something that evidences discrimination.  

This is why we normally prove discrimination cases with indirect evidence. Indirect evidence is bits of evidence that piece together to prove a case.

Proving discrimination requires a lawyer with attention to detail.  It requires a lawyer who is able to sift through the facts and find these pieces of evidence.

At The Lacy Employment Law Firm, we leave no stone unturned.

Bucks County Employment Attorneys Stop Harassment

Harassment is another common employment violation. Harassment occurs when an employee, usually a supervisor, targets another employee with unwelcome conduct.

That conduct must be objectively unreasonable and severe or persistent.

When we think harassment, we tend to think sexual harassment.  But harassment can also occur based on any protected characteristic.

It is not uncommon to find that a coworker, manager, or supervisor harassed another employee based on race, religion, disability, sex, etc.

For harassment claims, it is not necessary to show that an adverse employment action occurred.  This means that termination, 

Additional Employment Violations

You should be on the lookout for other employment violations.  This includes:

  • FMLA violations: you have the right, under certain circumstances, to request job-protected family and medical leave. If you qualify for this leave, your company cannot interfere with your right to take it.  Or retaliate against you for choosing to do so.
  • Wage and Hour violations: This happens when your employer does not pay you the proper wage or salary.  Or if they do not pay you overtime.  
  • Retaliation: If you company took vengeance against your for engaging in a protected activity, they have retaliated against you.  
  • American with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations: If you have a disability, as defined under the law, you qualify for a reasonable accommodation.  If your employer failed to accommodate you, then they broke the law.
