Assertively Protecting Workers In Disputes
The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) fields thousands of complaints each year from American workers. While our country’s workforce is among the most impressive in the world, it is clear that offices, construction zones and other sites remain hostile. Employees frequently have reason to file charges against their employers with regard to discrimination, hazardous working conditions, wrongful termination and related concerns.
Workers in Pennsylvania report more infractions than those in most other states; averaging nearly 4,500 complaints annually, our Commonwealth frequently ranks among the five chief EEOC violators.
We can help.
For more than a decade and a half, Vinsko & Associates, P.C., has helped workers throughout Pennsylvania in their disputes with employers. We know what’s at stake in such matters. Many are deprived of their lawful wages. Others face threats of physical or emotional abuse. This is why our attorneys have made it our mission to assert workers’ rights and interests.
A Full Spectrum Of Support For Workers
We offer experienced counsel in a wide array of employment law matters, including:
- Contract disputes — Whether disagreement stems from an employment or shareholder agreement, we work hard to achieve resolution.
- Wage violations — Workers are entitled to minimum wage, overtime and time-reporting protections, as stipulated by both Pennsylvania and federal law. Our lawyers can help enforce them.
- Workplace discrimination — Employers are prohibited from using race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexuality and other factors as means to discriminate against their employees. Yet they frequently violate this rule.
- Compensation considerations — When a worker becomes injured or ill as a result of his or her job, or is laid-off, we can help them obtain financial support through workers’ compensation claims and Social Security Disability claims, as well as through unemployment benefits.
Our firm is adept at negotiating favorable settlements for our clients. Yet when no agreement can be reached, we offer aggressive representation in the courtroom, where we have developed a reputation for effectiveness.
