We're available 24/7 at 412-394-1000 to discuss your case.

What Rights Do I Have in the Workplace?

In the United States, all employees have basic rights such as fair compensation and freedom from discrimination. The EEOC is the government agency that enforces these laws and protects employees from illegal treatment in the workplace. The EEOC has established protected classes, including:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Race
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Mental and physical disability
  • And more

If you want to file a complaint against your employer, you first file a complaint with the EEOC. You should contact us before you file this claim so that we can help make this process as successful as possible. Our law firm can walk you through every step of the process and will stand by your side until your case is over.

You only have 180 days after a workplace incident occurs to file a claim with the EEOC, so don't wait. Contact us today so we can get to work.

How Do I File a Claim With the EEOC?

Filing a claim with the EEOC is a complicated process, and you should consult an experienced Johnstown employment attorney to help you. You will have to provide the EEOC with details regarding the incident, so it is very important that you document everything that happens. If you think your workplace rights are being violated, we recommend keeping a detailed record of everything that happens.

In most situations, you only have 180 days to file a claim with the EEOC. For this reason, we recommend calling our office as soon as possible. We will make sure that you never miss a deadline and that your rights are fully protected.

How Much Will It Cost?

Many people never take action against their employer because they believe they can't afford it. And lots of law firms do charge an hourly rate. However, at Edgar Snyder & Associates, our employment law cases are handled on a "contingency fee" basis. This means that there are never any upfront costs and you don't pay us any fees. We believe that finances should never be a barrier to protecting your legal rights.
