Handling Constructive Discharge Matters In West Virginia
To have a valid employment claim, you do not necessarily have to be terminated by your employer. Constructive discharge arises when your working condition has become so intolerable that you cannot continue to work, and the intolerable conditions are based on an illegal factor, such as harassment on the basis of sex, race or religion.
Generally, an employee who is terminated for an illegal reason can claim compensation for lost earnings, including front pay and back pay, lost benefits, and noneconomic damages, such as embarrassment, humiliation and emotional distress. In some situations, punitive damages may be recoverable.
At The Moore Law Firm, PLLC, we have the experience necessary to handle these matters for West Virginians.
