A Protection From Abuse order can affect your job in Pennsylvania. A PFA order is a civil record. It can be accessed by an employer potentially through background checks. People in certain fields have potentially more of a concern than others. Anyone who's in a position of authority or control over another person, if they're found to be abusive, or if there's a finding of abuse by the court at a hearing, that would be a major concern for such an employee in a position of that nature.
Even a Temporary PFA order could have implications. People in health care, especially school teachers, educators, people in law enforcement who are required to have firearms, and of course, if a PFA order is issued against you on behalf or if the plaintiff is a fellow employee, that could have tremendous implications. Fundamentally, because it is a record that employers can access and see, it can have tremendous implications. Having an experienced PFA attorney will help you best understand the PFA process and the potential consequences. They should be involved from as early as possible in the case.
