Employment and Erisa Litigation

Litigation

Employee lawsuits are a part of today’s business world.  When a client faces a lawsuit from a current or former employee, our lawyers are ready to protect the client’s interests.

The Firm’s attorneys are experienced in defending clients against all types of employee claims, including the following discrimination claims:

  • Sexual harassment;
  • Gender discrimination;
  • Racial discrimination;
  • Age discrimination; and
  • Disability discrimination.

 

Our lawyers have defended clients against these types of claims before administrative agencies, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, and the Philadelphia Commission of Human Relations, as well as in state and federal court.

 

Experience

In addition, our lawyers have a broad range of experience in other types of employment litigation.  We have represented clients in lawsuits involving:

  • Wrongful termination claims;
  • Breach of contract claims;
  • Compensation issues, including wage payment and wage and hour claims;
  • Whistleblower claims; and
  • Violations of restrictive covenants, non-compete agreements, confidentiality agreements, and trade secret agreements.

The Firm’s attorneys have represented insurers and policyholders in a variety of litigation matters related to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). We have litigated individual ERISA benefit claims under life, health, and disability policies, as well as bad faith and fiduciary claims.  We have also represented pension fund trustees on complex matters including withdrawal liability, valuation, and successor liability in bankruptcy.
