Unemployment Compensation

Our firm knows how important unemployment compensation can be to a worker who is no longer working. We also know that no business should be held accountable for terminating an employee when that action was justified. Learn more about how we can help you file for and receive unemployment compensation.

Personnel Management and Human Resources

For a business to succeed, it has to be able to manage its employees just like any other resource. Having the solid guidance to help you avoid costly errors when dealing with employee issues is a necessity.

The employment lawyers at Trinity Law know that, when it comes to personnel management, the best defense is a good offense. Limiting employee claims against your business starts before any employee is ever interviewed. It is important that you do more than meet the Federal and State labor requirements. Good human resources management requires that a specific hiring plan and related procedure must be in place. This is the foundation upon which the entire employment relationship is based.

The successful employer must have an exceptional policy manual in place. The employer must take the proper steps to communicate what is and what is not acceptable behavior in the work place. A good manual does that – and more. The employment lawyers at Trinity Law will partner with your management and human resources department to insure that your business meets the requirements of the numerous State and Federal labor laws governing employment. On addition, we will provide sound advice and strategies to help insulate your business from successful future claims of illegality.

At Trinity Law, our employment lawyers provide sound advice from the beginning of the employment relationship to the end. For example, we answer questions about drug testing, criminal backgrounds, and credit checks, frequently associated with early employment. Likewise, we advise employers on discipline and termination strategies as well, often associated with the tail-end of the employment relationship.

The following is a list of just some of the areas for which we provide legal advice and guidance:

Wrongful Discharge

Wrongful discharge is a specific legal theory that may or may not apply to a situation involving the termination of an employee from employment. The law of Pennsylvania is clear and specific, in many respects, as to what types of claims constitute wrongful discharge. If you believe you have been the subject of wrongful discharge, you should contact an attorney to explore the matter carefully.
