You need the The Law Offices of Wienand and Bagin of Pittsburgh.
Executives and professionals often have unique situations or concerns. If you are negotiating an executive retention agreement, you will need to consider contractual terms such as your duties, the amount and forms of compensation, and separation-related provisions such as the events that can lead to termination of the agreement, severance pay and restrictive covenants. You need to know your options and fully understand the agreement your are entering into.
Workplace discrimination and retaliation are illegal and unacceptable. We are committed to fighting for the rights of our clients who have suffered discrimination or retaliation. Discrimination and retaliation can bring about direct and tangible financial effects, such as lost wages; it can also be at the root of the more subtle and emotional effects of harassment and workplace hostility. Both situations can be actionable, and you may have a right to compensation under the law.
We are experienced and compassionate regarding sexual harassment legal representation and have provided resolution to numerous clients victimized by workplace harassment. We can evaluate your harassment claim, including an investigation of the harassment, workplace response and company anti-harassment policies and procedures. We can pursue outcomes including financial compensation and an order to cease the harassment.
Do you have a disability that affects your ability to work or requires some accommodations from your employer so you can do your job effectively? Federal law bars employers from discriminating against disabled employees and we can help you make sense of your legal options for holding them accountable. We have a deep understanding of the employment law landscape in Pennsylvania and are ready to fight for your rights.
If you have a situation that qualifies for Family and Medical Leave Act protection, and you have been wrongfully denied the right to take leave, or if your employer has changed or eliminated your job while you were on FMLA leave, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your interests. We represent employees who have been denied the right to take FMLA leave or who have experienced a change, or a loss of a job while on FMLA leave.
We provide aggressive representation for workplace retaliation victims. It’s human nature for employers to be angry about employees filing claims, and employers often act on the impulse to retaliate.

No employee should have to live in fear of workplace retaliation for simply doing the right thing.

"I had a smaller case, but it was a huge step for me to stand up for myself. I was stressed and scared from what I was experiencing, after speaking to a few attorneys about my case, I was referred to Mr. Christian Bagin. What a brilliant attorney, along with competence and professionalism, he’s very caring and has a calming intensity; he’s absolutely great to work with. I couldn’t have asked for any better communication, if I e-mailed him a question on any day, he responded quickly and thoroughly. He was so dedicated and focused on my case from day one and produced successful results. I highly recommend Mr. Christian Bagin."
"Christian Bagin is a truly exceptional legal professional that anyone would want on their side. I couldn't have been more appreciative to have hired Christian as my employment lawyer. His vast knowledge of employment law and tenacious attention to his work never ceased to amaze me. He was always very prompt with responses to my many questions even when he was away from the office on vacation. Not only is Christian extraordinary in his field of law, he is a trustworthy, kind, and compassionate man who always made time for me as his client. I whole heartily recommend Christian to anyone in need of an Employment Law Attorney."
"Christian is a very rare find, and truly a client's best friend. Christian is one of the finest and most knowledgeable employment and civil rights litigators that I have ever met. But in addition to his absolutely stellar knowledge of his field, you can count on him to truly be one of the good guys. Christian is the only attorney that I know who will actually refer me to another competent attorney when a matter is outside of his expertise. I could go on for hours showering Christian with compliments, but let's just say that I think the world of him and I have absolutely no reservations about giving him my highest unconditional recommendation both personally and professionally."
"Morality cannot be legislated but behavior can be regulated.
Judicial decrees may not change the heart, but they can restrain the heartless."
