Employment discrimination

Being treated differently because of your age, gender, race or disability can affect more than your career. It can leave you feeling isolated and helpless. You are not alone. The lawyers at Steele Schneider are here to help. We have many years of experience successfully protecting the rights of employees dealing with discrimination in the workplace based on:

  • Age

  • National origin

Disability Discrimination Claims

In the United States, the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing laws such as the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). If you are being discriminated against because of a disability or medical condition, we encourage you to contact us to discuss it with one of our experienced lawyers.

The First Steps

When you are dealing with a potential employment discrimination lawsuit of any kind, it is important to make every attempt to address the problem with your employer before taking your grievances to a court of law. When every internal option has been exhausted, if the problem remains unresolved it is time to take the next step and request a federal right to sue letter providing permission to bring the case before the EEOC. If the case does not qualify for the federal court system, it may be possible to address it on the state level through the Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission (PHRC). Our lawyers will provide a clear evaluation of your case, including potential eligibility on either the state or federal level.
