Constructive Discharge Lawyer in Morgantown
Helping Clients throughout West Virginia Protect Their Working Life
Not all employment discrimination leads to a person being fired. In some instances, employers make the workplace so hostile that employees simply cannot tolerate it any longer. A constructive discharge occurs when an employee has no other choice but to leave their workplace because of the toxic environment, due to harassment on the basis of sex, race, or religion or the like. If you were made to quit your job, reach out to the Morgantown constructive discharge lawyer at The Moore Law Firm, PLLC today to schedule a consultation.
Suing for Hostile Work Environments
If you left your job because you could no longer work there without feeling unsafe, it is important that you recognize this puts your employer at risk of a lawsuit. In many cases, employers will make their employees’ workplaces so hostile that they are virtually forced to leave. While they may argue that your quitting your job absolves them of responsibility, our employment law attorney can help you demonstrate why their behavior is not only unethical but also unlawful.
Your employer may have tried to force you out because you:
- Reported unlawful behavior to authorities
- Objected to wage violation laws
- Filed a claim for workers’ compensation
- Reported racial or gender discrimination to your superiors
- Called out a breach of your employment contract
