The leading Workplace Discrimination Attorney in Washington PA.


We believe that workers should be paid a living wage in an environment free of illegal discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Our employment discrimination lawyers represent employees who have suffered discrimination and/or harassment at work.

A. Some federal anti-discrimination laws applicable to employment are:

  • The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) (disability);
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (age );
  • Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance);
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (race, color, religion, sex, and national origin);
  • Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (sex discrimination in federally funded education programs);
  • The Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) (sex discrimination in the payment of wages);
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) (interference with or unfair treatment based upon use of FMLA-mandated medical, family or care-giving leave);
  • The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 (PDA) (pregnancy);
  • Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) (military service).

B. State and local laws also offer protections for employees and/or independent contractors in the workplace. The state and/or local laws applicable to a particular employer may prohibit harassment or prejudicial treatment based upon one or more of the following protected characteristics:

  • Race
  • color;
  • disability, record of disability, or association with a disabled person;
  • religion;
  • national origin;
  • family status;
  • marital status;
  • ancestry or place of birth;
  • age; and
  • sex;
