What Makes a Bucks County Employment Attorney Unique?

A Pennsylvania employment attorney works in a very complicated and unique area of law.  Labor and employment issues involve both federal and state laws.  A Bucks County employment and labor lawyer must also deal with various administrative agencies and commissions, such as the U.S. Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry, and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission.

For these reasons, employment claims are not just another type of civil litigation that an average law firm can handle. Employee rights claims require a very special kind of experience and knowledge not all lawyers or law firms have.

Experienced employment attorneys

The firm of Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti, P.C. has a team of experienced Pennsylvania employment attorneys. Unlike some other Bucks County labor law firms, we make defending the rights of employees a central part of our practice. Our attorneys are well versed in the latest developments affecting the various federal employment laws:

  • The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) guarantees a minimum wage for most workers. It regulates overtime pay as well as how and when employees must receive their compensation.
  • The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) regulates general workplace safety and conditions affecting the health of workers.
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits an employer from discriminating on the basis of an employee's race, religion, sex, or national origin when it comes to the hiring, firing, or the terms and conditions of employment.
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits an employer from discriminating against a qualified person with a disability when hiring, firing, or establishing other conditions of employment. It also requires an employer to make reasonable accommodations to employees or applicants with disabilities.
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals over the age of 40 on the basis of age.
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires employers to grant unpaid leave to employees who experience certain family or medical issues.
  • The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN Act) requires employers to give employees 60 days' notice before plant closings or mass layoffs.
  • Many other federal laws contain provisions that protect employees who report violations.

In addition to rights granted under federal law, a Bucks County labor and employment law attorney with Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti, P.C. is knowledgeable about state laws in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey that may further expand your rights.
