Without sufficient precision, MMA will "see" this z on the branch cut:

z = 2 - I*10^(-1000); a = 1/2;
Block[{$MaxExtraPrecision = 100},
N[ HurwitzLerchPhi[1/z, 1, -a] - HurwitzLerchPhi[z, 1, a] +
1/a - (-1/z)^a*Pi/Sin[Pi*(1 + a)] , 100]]

0.*10^-100 +
4.4428829381583662470158809900606936986146216893756902230853956069564\
34793099473910575326934764765237 I

But with enough digits, it "sees" it's not on the branch and your
formula appears correct:

z = 2 - I*10^(-1000); a = 1/2;
Block[{$MaxExtraPrecision = 1100},
N[ HurwitzLerchPhi[1/z, 1, -a] - HurwitzLerchPhi[z, 1, a] +
1/a - (-1/z)^a*Pi/Sin[Pi*(1 + a)] , 1100]]

0.*10^-2199 + 0.*10^-2199 I
