Charleston, WV Race Discrimination Lawyers
Committed to Maintaining Equality in the Workplace in Morgantown, Clarksburg and Parkersburg
Every individual deserves and has an absolute right to a workplace free of race discrimination. Unfortunately, race discrimination continues to exist within our nation’s workforces.
Far too many employers are making decision based upon the color of one’s skin rather than the quality of his or her work. Highly qualified workers are being passed over for promotions, harassed, and subject to racially insensitive comments because of their race.

Bailess Law Firm has obtained highly successful results for clients who have experienced race discrimination in the workplace. We help hold employers accountable who engage in discriminatory practices such as:
- Racially motivated jokes and comments,
- Exclusion for job opportunities,
- Retaliation for reporting race discrimination,
- Failing to promote,
- Failing to hire, or
- Failing to take prompt and correct action against discrimination.
