Scranton PA Employment Litigation Lawyer

Plaintiff Civil Litigation

The relationship between businesses and employees can be a complex one, and often one with issues that can only be resolved in the courtroom. Whether you are an organization facing litigation brought by a current or former employee or your company needs to protect its rights and assets by seeking legal protections, our attorneys can help.

We counsel and guide businesses in employment disputes involving:

  • Discrimination
  • Accusations of wrongful termination
  • Abuse and hostile work environments
  • Breach of contract
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Severance agreements
  • Restrictive covenant cases
  • Abuse of trade secrets

Helping Clients Resolve FLSA Disputes

The right to receive an honest pay for an honest days work is well-rooted in our Nation's history. The FLSA and its governing regulations subjects employers to harsh penalties for infringing on that right.

If an employer violates any of your rights to fair wages under the FLSA, our attorneys will help you, and all other similarly situated employees, recover your fair wage, including proper overtime compensation employers regularly refuse by intentionally misclassifying their employees as exempt under the statute.

Under the FLSA, you are also entitled to liquidated damages, for violation of the statute, which is equal to double the amount of the wages unlawfully withheld by the employer. Our attorneys have successfully pursued such liquidated damages.

 Our office serves clients in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre and across northeastern Pennsylvania in a range of business litigation and contract disputes. We have the resources to meet the often complex needs of mid-market and privately held corporations with the personal attention and custom legal strategies you expect as a benefit of working with a smaller local firm.
