Employer / Employee Rights

Employers and employees need to understand that there are numerous federal, state and local laws that affect their relationship.  These include the American with Disabilities Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, Family and Medical Leave Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, and many others.  Our experienced lawyers understand these laws and their impact on business. 

If an employee is not under contract, he or she is an at-will employee. An employer can dismiss an at-will employee hired for an indefinite term at any time for any non-discriminatory reason. Likewise, the at-will employee is free to terminate their employment at any time. The at-will employment doctrine, however, is being eroded in many states. Some challenges and exceptions to at-will employment include: breach of implied contracts through employee handbooks, public policy violations, reliance on an offer of employment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
