There are other circumstances where an employer may illegally retaliate against an employee. If you have reason to believe your employer retaliated against you, you need an experienced lawyer with a proven record of results. The Pittsburgh law firm of Samuel J. Cordes & Associates has helped countless working men and women across Western Pennsylvania in the full range of employment claims.

For instance, our law firm recently won a case on behalf of a police officer who was fired when he complained that his employer would not let him wear a Cross pin. He also requested an accommodation to attend church services on Sunday.

Our lawyers understand what is necessary to build the strongest possible claim against your employer, and will fully investigate your case. Once we have gathered evidence of illegal retaliation, we will pursue your full measure of damages under the law.
