If you’re in York, Pennsylvania with a Disability Discrimination issue we can help.

The employer is not helpful, or after they’ve come back to work, some issues arise.
“So many times, I will get a call after the employee has been fired, and they say “Hey. I don’t know why they fired me. It seems like my performance went down; I had some discipline issues after I went back to work when we had a worker’s compensation issue. Suddenly, I’m finding myself being heavily scrutinized,” explains Jeremy Donham.
