Charleston, WV Employment Law Attorneys
Providing Skilled and Caring Legal Counsel in Morgantown, Clarksburg and Parkersburg
We understand how unsettling it can be to be wrongfully terminated or faced with the difficult decision of whether to quit your job and lose your income or stay and continue to endure harassment, discrimination, or retaliation. We're here for you, and we're eager to help you right the wrongs you've suffered in the workplace.
We skillfully handle a wide range of employment law matters, including those involving:
- Sexual harassment: This type of harassment can take many forms on the job; it isn't just being offered a promotion in exchange for sexual favors. Sexual harassment can include anything from the use of explicit language to frequent jokes and inappropriate comments that make for a hostile work environment.
- Retaliation: Reporting harassment, unsafe conditions, or other unlawful behavior by your employer should never lead to additional harassment or actions intended to punish you for taking your experiences to human resources, the authorities, or an attorney.
- Racial discrimination: Federal law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees based on their race, color, or national origin.
- Disability discrimination: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) makes it illegal for employers to discriminate against qualified employees with disabilities. Examples include passing over employees for job assignments, promotions, or other job-related benefits or activities, simply because they have a disability.
- Pregnancy discrimination: Similar to disability discrimination, this type of discrimination occurs when a highly qualified woman is denied a job assignment or promotion because she is pregnant.
- Wrongful termination: Exceptions to "at-will" employment laws protect you from being fired for unlawful reasons.
- Title IX: Title IX is a federal law that protects people from discrimination based on sex, including in the workplace. Specifically, the statute applies to workers who are employed in federally funded universities and other educational institutions.
- USERRA: The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) prohibits workplace discrimination of military veterans and people who are currently serving or pursuing military service.
