Discrimination in the workplace on the basis or race, disability, gender, age and other protected classes is against the law. But that does not stop some employers in Allegheny County and Western Pennsylvania from engaging in these prohibited practices.
The good news for victims of discrimination is that the law provides for specific remedies. These can include compensation for lost wages and benefits, reinstatement in cases of wrongful discharge or some combination of these. The victim may also be able to have their attorney's fees paid by the employer and, in some cases, can receive punitive compensation.

Getting Compensation And Justice
The first step toward getting justice in a discrimination case is to file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). You can do this yourself, or we can help you do it. If the EEOC thinks your case has merit, they will take it themselves or issue a "right to sue" letter. This letter gives us the go-ahead to initiate a discrimination lawsuit.
DeAngelis, Dastur & Associates P.C. will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case, undertaking discovery efforts and interviewing witnesses. Often, our careful case preparation methods enable us to obtain good results during mediation. If necessary though, we will proceed to trial and energetically litigate on your behalf.
DeAngelis, Dastur & Associates P.C. will work to obtain compensation for lost wages, lost benefits, possible reinstatement if you have been terminated — and, most importantly, justice for the wrongs you have suffered.
