Flaherty Fardo helps our business clients with a wide spectrum of advice pertaining to employment issues, including but not limited to:

We help our business clients understand Pennsylvania employment law with regards to both the hiring and terminating process. By obtaining proper employment advice with regards to employees, businesses can better avoid legal disputes and save money.
One of the areas of law that our business and employment attorneys are very passionate about is Pennsylvania wrongful discrimination cases. Unfortunately, discrimination still occurs in the workplace and in everyday society.
Pittsburgh is still seen by many as allowing racial and religious discrimination to occur. Our discrimination attorneys can provide free consultations on all Pennsylvania discrimination cases including:
One area of the of the law which we believe is increasing is age discrimination. As many workers get older, it seems as though current economical times are requiring most Americans to work later in life.
Many businesses are trying to avoid larger salaries of older workers, and are sometimes discriminating against men and women over the age of fifty in return for younger, more inexpensive employees. We fight for all individuals discriminated against, and specifically those affected later in life solely because of their age.
We have also taken a passionate stance against both racial and religious discrimination. With all of the problems existing throughout the world and in our society, it is incomprehensible how anyone can still have the ignorance to treat different anyone differently because of race, religion or any other protected class.
