Dear HR Executive,
Toe the line on federal employment law, and Pennsylvania law could still trip you up:
  • Allow managers to yell at employees? A Pennsylvania jury may find you guilty of inflicting emotional distress.
  • Tell a supervisor to fire a worker because money is "disappearing?" Pennsylvania prosecutors may charge you with slander.
  • Forget to check an applicant’s references? If that employee later commits criminal misdeeds, you can face a massive negligent-hiring lawsuit.

It’s not easy being an employer in Pennsylvania. Disgruntled employees and their big-shot lawyers use all sorts of laws to get even with employers. Plus, Pennsylvania jurors are famously generous to fired employees. And Pennsylvania lawyers are notorious for using state laws to sue employers in all kinds of creative ways – even if the employer complies perfectly with federal law.

Make even one little employment law mistake, and your organization could be making the evening news and every newspaper for miles around.

Here’s why: Attorneys used to be satisfied with suing employers under well-defined federal laws like the ADA, FLSA and the FMLA. But Congress cut the amount of money employees could win in federal cases (and that cut the attorney’s share).
So, to make a bigger haul, lawyers are coming after
Pennsylvania employers through state and even local laws.
The bad news: Those lawyers can use a mountain of laws against you – with absolutely NO limit on how much a generous jury can award to disgruntled employees. Worse yet: Today’s litigious workers and super-aggressive lawyers aren’t just going after companies – they’re also suing supervisors, managers and HR professionals personally.
That means your bank account, your home and everything else you’ve
worked so hard for is at risk every time you make a decision at work.
In fact, when a Pennsylvania court recently ruled in favor of a blind woman in a personal-injury case, the woman's supervisors were held personally liable for more than 1.5 million – each.
Lawsuit-happy employees may rely on friendly juries and ferocious attorneys. But with the guidance right here, right now, you may never have to face them in court.Pennsylvania Employment Law
