The growing diversity seen in today’s workforce presents employers with many exciting opportunities, and increasing challenges, not least of which is the danger of discrimination – real or perceived.

Discrimination continues to impact the lives of citizens throughout the Commonwealth.Discrimination in any form—race, sex, age, disability or any other—is governed by the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, whose provisions are enforced by the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC).

Whether you represent complainants or respondents, and whether your client is a private or public entity, effective representation requires an understanding of these laws and of the Commission’s unique structure and procedures. This book provides you with a guide to practicing before the Commission, and an update on Pennsylvania law and the various federal anti-discrimination statutes.
