Assertive Pennsylvania Labor and Employment Law Attorneys

Ensuring compliance, safeguarding success
A profitable business serves the needs of employees, management and the marketplace. But friction between employers and employees often causes complications that hurt a company’s competitiveness and threaten the livelihoods of everyone involved. At Wagner & Finn, we have 50+ years of combined experience defending the rights of workers to safe, hospitable and equitable employment, as well as management’s right to productivity and performance. Our experience on both sides of labor and employment issues makes us uniquely qualified to assist you with comprehensive and lasting solutions to issues that can poison workplace morale and undermine a company’s success.

Supporting productive workplace conditions

Following complex legal procedures takes valuable time away from management’s real job — running and promoting business. We have counseled businesses on procedure and compliance with employment laws, including:

  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)
  • Workers Compensation Program
  • Consumer Credit Protection Act (CPCA)
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act
  • Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA)
  • Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Helping employers build strong employer-employee relationships

For businesses to plan and expand, operations must be predictable and reliable. Adherence to laws governing employment relations ensures a company’s legal operation. We provide employers with day-to-day compliance counseling and just resolutions to workplace disputes that advance the relationship between employers and employees and further your business success.

Correcting power imbalances

We understand that employees often hesitate to confront employers, especially in troubled economic times. We empower individuals to receive the justice they deserve. We assist with cases involving:

  • Discrimination
  • Workers Compensation
  • Unemployment
  • Unlawful harassment
  • Wrongful termination
  • Unpaid overtime
  • Unpaid wages
  • Whistleblower retaliation

Challenging discrimination in the workplace

Federal law prohibits employers from discriminatory practices regarding hiring, promotion, termination, types of assignments and pay. When making decisions, employers cannot legally consider:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Age
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Disability
  • Color

By applying extensive knowledge of state and federal labor and employment laws, we can prove or disprove acts of discrimination.

Safeguarding a productive business

Just as your company has certain specific responsibilities to its employees, workers are obligated to comply with work policies and legal requirements that affect your business. Incompetent, unethical or unlawful behavior of a worker has potentially devastating consequences. We assist businesses in:

  • Developing clear, written employment policies
  • Drafting employment contracts
  • Drafting non-compete agreements
  • Drafting nondisclosure agreements
  • Addressing suspicions of a worker’s unlawful or unethical acts
  • Disciplining employees, with necessary documentation
