Employee Rights

Pennsylvania and New Jersey Employee Rights

Workers have certain rights under federal, state and local law in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Employers must respect those rights and follow the law. They may not discriminate based on certain factors, must appropriately pay employees, and must give them leave under certain circumstances, along with other laws.

If an employer violates one of those laws, the worker may have a claim and recover for his or her damages. The company has their own attorneys on retainer – the employee should have a skilled attorney as well.

For decades, the lawyers at Console Mattiacci Law, LLC have exclusively represented employees in all areas of employment law throughout the greater Philadephia areas in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
