Employment Law in Pennsylvania

If you work in the Keystone State, there are federal and state laws that protect you at work. These laws prohibit discrimination, require employers to pay the proper minimum wage, as well as overtime, and give employees the right to time off. However, Pennsylvania doesn’t require employers to offer paid leave or provide employees with severance pay. If you have an employment issue in Pennsylvania, you’ll want to hire a local attorney who knows the ins and outs of the laws in your area. Hughes & Mashinski serve multiple counties in Northeast PA, so contact us today to see how we can help you.
