Console Mattiacci Law, LLC | Philadelphia & New Jersey Employment Lawyer
Protecting the Rights of Employees in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York
If you are seeking justice for violations of your rights in your workplace, having experienced legal counsel on your side can make a tremendous difference in the results of your case. Demanding your legal rights from an employer can be an intimidating process, but a skilled attorney on your side can give you confidence in the process ahead.
Federal, state and local laws protect employees against various forms of discrimination based on a variety of different factors, including gender, race, national origin, age, religion, sexual orientation, whether or not the person has a real or perceived disability and if the employee is pregnant.
Discrimination can include harassment. If a worker has been sexually harassed at work from unwelcome advances or crude comments, she or he has been discriminated against due to her or his gender.
At Console Mattiacci Law, LLC, our lawyers fight to make sure workers who have been unlawfully discriminated or retaliated against recover for the damage done by their employer, including lost back pay, lost future pay, emotional distress damages, punitive damages and attorneys’ fees and costs.
Employees who are denied overtime in violation of federal and state law have a right to recover for the money they would have been paid, as well as liquidated damages and attorneys’ fees and costs.
If you make a complaint of discrimination, your employer may not retaliate against under the law. This means the employer cannot terminate you or make your working conditions less favorable without violating the law. For decades, Console Mattiacci Law, LLC has held those employers who retaliate against employees accountable and have recovered substantial sums for wrongfully treated employees.
Protecting Whistleblowers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York
If a company engages in conduct that is illegal or against the policy of the state, employees are encouraged to report that conduct to an attorney. The attorneys at Console Mattiacci Law, LLC will thoroughly explain the laws that protect you and the substantial recovery you may be entitled to for reporting the conduct.
A common area of whistleblower law involves fraud upon the government. This can include Medicare or Medicaid fraud, illegal kickbacks, overpricing of government contracts, or off-label marketing of pharmaceuticals.
However, in order to be a whistleblower, the fraud does not necessarily need to be against the government. It could simply be other types of illegal conduct or actions in violation of the public policy of the state.
There are substantial recoveries available to whistleblowers who report inappropriate conduct. If you are aware of such conduct, contact the attorneys at Console Mattiacci Law, LLC for a full and thorough consultation. The sooner you consult with an attorney, the better because in some cases the deadline to file is only 180 days from your first awareness of the improper conduct.
Moreover, for some federal whistleblower claims, you must be the “first to file” – meaning you need to be the first person to have reported this conduct to the government in order to be entitled to the whistleblower reward. The attorneys at Console Mattiacci Law, LLC are experienced in handling these matters. In 2013, Console Mattiacci Law, LLC won the largest whistleblower verdict in the state of Pennsylvania with a unanimous jury verdict.
