Representing Businesses in Labor and Employment Law Matters
The employment law attorneys at Appel & Yost LLP provide counsel to businesses of all sizes. Our attorneys assist employers in navigating the highly regulated and increasingly complex modern workplace. By working to prevent workplace conflicts and ensure compliance with applicable law, our attorneys pride themselves on being able to identify and address legal issues before they mature into legal disputes. The labor law attorneys at Appel & Yost skillfully negotiate, review, and draft employment contracts, covenants not to compete, non-solicitation agreements, severance agreements, employee handbooks, and many other legal documents.
Our attorneys also assist employers in resolving employment disputes through negotiation and litigation. The litigators at Appel & Yost LLP are available to protect employers' interests by providing vigorous and dynamic representation in response to claims involving, among other things, employment discrimination, wrongful discharge, breach of contract, wage and overtime disputes, and workplace harassment. Our litigators are also dedicated to seeing our clients receive the benefit of their bargain by seeking judicial enforcement of their contracts and the promises contained therein.
Representing Individuals in Labor and Employment Law Matters
Appel & Yost LLP represents individuals who have been wrongfully discharged, subjected to harassment in the workplace, improperly denied employee leave or benefits, or discriminated against based on their age, gender, race, religion, or disability. Our seasoned employment law attorneys work closely with employees to evaluate their claims and present various options and alternatives for proceeding. Where appropriate, our labor and employment law attorneys aggressively litigate their clients' claims for fair and just compensation in light of employer wrongdoing.
The attorneys at Appel & Yost LLP also assist clients who have been injured on the job. Pennsylvania law requires employers provide compensation for lost wages and medical expenses to employees that have suffered certain work related injuries. This compensation is not only important to the employee but is often necessary for the financial and physical well-being of the worker and his or her family. It is important that injured workers contact an experienced attorney as quickly as possible following a workplace injury. Our worker's compensation attorneys provide clients with honest assessments of their situation, assistance in filing worker's compensation claims, and vigorous representation in court where necessary. Appel & Yost LLP also represents clients who have suffered a permanent or lasting disability who may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income.
