Wrongful termination in Pennsylvania is a hotly litigated topic. Giampolo Law Group represents clients who were wrongfully terminated for reasons including refusing to commit a crime, applying for workman’s compensation, filing a claim under the Wage Payment and Collection Law, and for reporting health or safety hazards they were legally obligated to report. GLG also represents employees who were discriminated against based on age, sex, race, religion, retaliation, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
In Pennsylvania, employers are allowed to hire and fire employees “at will” —employees can be fired without reason and at any time. However, there are limits to the at-will doctrine, and GLG will make sure that you are compensated for wrongful termination.
At GLG, we also expertly draft and review employee contracts—including non-competition, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements—and severance agreements. If you are considering signing an employment agreement, the best thing you can do is to have it reviewed by an experienced attorney.
Our mission is to guide our clients through practical action to resolve their claims without resorting to a lawsuit and to represent them strongly in court when a lawsuit is warranted.
