The employment law attorneys of Kitay Law Offices are well-versed in the areas of:

  • Discrimination
  • Workplace harassment
  • Sexual harassment
  • Wrongful termination
  • Whistleblower retaliation
  • Wage and hour law

If you or someone you know has been discriminated against or harassed at work or has been denied overtime pay, you should immediately contact Kitay Law Offices at 1-888-KITAY-LAW for a FREE consultation. The timelines to file a legal claim are strict and missed deadlines could result in the loss of your claim forever.

Workplace Discrimination

Unfortunately, despite decades of enormous progress, workplace discrimination continues to be a serious problem. Luckily, there are several federal, state, and local laws that protect you. It’s important to remember, however, that not all discrimination is illegal. Rather, the law prohibits workplace discrimination that is based on certain specified characteristics, also called “protected classes.” Federal law, for example, makes it illegal for your employer to discriminate against you based on your race, color, ancestry, gender, religion, disability, pregnancy, or age. Pennsylvania law also prohibits these forms of discrimination as well as discrimination that is based on GED completion and willingness or refusal to participate in abortion or sterilization. Some cities, such as Philadelphia, have their own discrimination ordinances, which make it unlawful for employers to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

If you suspect you’ve been fired or denied a job or promotion because of unlawful discrimination based on one of the characteristics listed above, you may be entitled to compensation. But you have a limited amount of time to file a claim. Therefore, you should contact the attorneys at Kitay Law Offices right away at 1-888-KITAY-LAW for a risk-free consultation.

Workplace Harassment

Workplace discrimination is not just when your employer fires you or refuses to hire or promote you based on your race or the color of your skin; it is also when your employer harasses you or allows you to be harassed. “Harassment” is a general term that may include things like insults, epithets, stereotypes, derogatory comments, pranks, surveillance, increased job scrutiny, and/or any other form of unequal or unfair treatment. In more severe instances, harassment may also include things like assault or unwanted sexual advances. This is often referred to in the law as creating a “hostile work environment.” But like discrimination, not all harassment is illegal.

No one deserves to be in a hostile work environment. You have the right to work in a safe, professional environment without being subjected to harassment or degrading treatment. If you believe you are being illegally harassed at work because of your race, color, ancestry, gender, religion, disability, or sexual orientation, call Kitay Law Offices at 1-888-KITAY-LAW to speak to one of our experienced employment attorneys.

Workplace Retaliation

Both state and federal law protect you from retaliation by your employer for complaining about illegal discrimination or harassment. The law also protects you if you participate in someone else’s complaint of illegal discrimination or harassment. If you believe your employer retaliated against you because you complained about its discriminatory treatment of you or others, you may be entitled to compensation.

Workplace Civil Rights

If you work for a government employer, you have certain rights under the U.S. Constitution with regard to your job in addition to those rights protected by state and federal laws. For example, under the First Amendment, your public employer cannot retaliate against you for engaging in protected speech or political activity. Likewise, under the Fourteenth Amendment, your public employer cannot treat you differently from other employees because of your race, color, ancestry, gender, disability, or religion. Plus, if you are a member of union and can only be fired for “just cause,” the Fourteenth Amendment entitles you to a notice and hearing before you can be fired.

Whistle Blower Retaliation

Government employees also receive special protection against retaliation for reporting waste or misconduct. Exposing government waste or misconduct is an important public interest, and the law protects government employees from complaining about it. If you were fired or disciplined for complaining about your public employer’s waste or misconduct, call Kitay Law Offices at 1-888-KITAY-LAW to discuss your potential options with one of our employment attorneys.

Unpaid Wages & Overtime

Both state and federal law generally require your employer to pay you minimum wage as well as overtime pay for every hour you work over 40 hours per week, subject to certain limited exceptions. Pennsylvania law also requires your employer to pay you all the wages you’ve earned on regularly scheduled pay days. If you believe you have been paid less than minimum wage or have been denied overtime pay, or if your employer simply refuses to pay you for your work, you may have a legal claim. To find out if you do, contact the experienced employment attorneys at 1-888-KITAY-LAW to schedule a FREE consultation.

Kitay Law Firm has been by my side since 2012 ,when others turned me away. I appreciate the family atmosphere ,while they still maintaining a professional relationship. I had a scheduling conflict this week.Yesenia Justiniano dropped everything, and resolved the problem rapidly, that is within an hour. I know who is reliable in the Reading Area. When was the last time a law firm really went the extra mile for their clients. Trust is number one with me ,while other firms promise success with minimal results. Thank you Ken and staff for providing an invaluable service. Without your support I would not have made it this far with my injuries, work difficulties and recoveries.God bless Bill
