Focused On The Rights Of Employees

At The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC, in Philadelphia, we are focused on the rights of employees in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We represent employees from executives with issues affecting the terms of their executive employment contracts and severance agreements to wage earners who have been mistreated or misclassified in the workplace, such as being paid like an independent contractor but treated like an employee. Whatever the issue, our Philadelphia employment lawyers at The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC, will begin by honing in on the client's specific goals and customizing a strategy that is appropriate to meet those goals. Regardless of the challenges, we persist until the case has been resolved and success has been achieved.

We assist employees with cases involving:

You may be denied benefits for a number of reasons including: quitting your job without a necessitous and compelling, i.e., valid reason, losing your job due to intentional misconduct, failing to apply for or take suitable work or the inability or unavailability to work.

Although you may have been determined disqualified for unemployment benefits, an experienced employment lawyer can appeal the initial decision to the referee and obtain the benefits you deserve. If you have been unjustly denied employment compensation in Pennsylvania, call The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC, to speak with a Philadelphia unemployment compensation lawyer today.

If you were injured on the job, the experienced workers' compensation attorneys at The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC, are the best attorneys to protect your rights. If you suffered a workplace accident or developed a work-related injury or illness, contact The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC, and have an experienced personal injury attorney fight for your rights.

These are complex issues. Many employees do not understand what their rights are and what they are entitled to, which is why it is so critical that they contact an attorney if they believe they have been wronged by employers in any way. We educate our clients about their rights as we move forward to address the wrongs and obtain for them the necessary compensation.

CEOs, CFOs and other executives can turn to us for assistance in negotiating compensation packages. We are skilled at reviewing, interpreting and negotiating employment contracts and severance agreements, taking the necessary steps to maximize pay, benefits and protection for our clients. When these contracts are violated by employers, we handle the ensuing disputes.

Employment Law For Employers

By helping employers comply with employment laws, we believe we are taking a proactive approach to protecting employees' rights. We work with and counsel employers to prevent employee rights violations from happening in the first place. Not only does this save employees from the stress of having to deal with discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation or other issues, it also saves the employer the time and money that is lost when an employee is forced to take action. We take a preemptive approach to employment legal counseling.

Our employment law for employers' services includes assistance with employee handbooks and personnel handbooks, employment policies and procedures, social media policies, human resources audits, OSHA investigation counseling, diversity training, discrimination and sexual harassment prevention training.
