As an attorney in the Workers’ Compensation/Social Security Disability Department of Rothman Gordon, John Zatkos works exclusively with workers’ compensation clients, although his background also includes experience in civil litigation, Bankruptcy, and Social Security. While John has represented individuals from many backgrounds, he has built a reputation serving union employees seeking compensation benefits and has extensive experience in class action litigation under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

John authors the quarterly Workers’ Compensation Newsletter and regularly presents on Workers’ Compensation issues to unions and professional organizations such as the Pennsylvania Association for Justice (formerly PaTLA).

His recent presentations have included Sterling Educational Seminars, the PA Department of Labor & Industry and the Center for Education Management. John also taught at CCAC’s Center for Professional Development.
