Wyomissing, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/27/2018 -- Kozloff Stoudt Attorneys, personal injury attorneys in Reading, PA, is shedding light on some of the ins-and-outs of contemporary employment discrimination law in Pennsylvania.
Kozloff Stoudt Attorneys explains that in the state of Pennsylvania, employment discrimination happens when an employer, whether potential or actual, takes an adverse action against an individual due to their religion, national origin, gender, race, color, sexual orientation, or age. Termination of employment, as well as demotion or salary cuts, can all theoretically be considered adverse actions regarding employment discrimination.
One must file a claim before attempting to file a lawsuit, filing their claims within 180 days of the incident concerned with either Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission.
Once one has filed a complaint of discrimination, the agency with which the complainant has registered a claim will assign an investigator to the claim involved. Investigators will ask both the complainant and the employer to answer a list of questions and may conduct in-person or phone interviews as well to gather relevant information.
If the agency cannot broker an agreement between the two parties, they will then decide whether or not to file a lawsuit on the complainant's behalf. If so, the agency will aid the plaintiff in the legal proceedings. If the agency chooses not to proceed with a lawsuit, the complainant retains the right to file their suit within a designated term.
Those with any questions regarding employment discrimination law or personal injury law in Reading are encouraged to contact Kozloff Stoudt Attorneys today by calling 610-370-6700, or by visiting their site at https://www.kozloffstoudt.com.
