Combating Discrimination in the Workplace
As an employee, you deserve a safe work environment. Discrimination and other inappropriate acts can make for a hostile and unwelcoming workplace. When you experience discrimination at work, you may feel deflated and without options — fortunately, as a worker, you do have rights.
Our firm can help you fight back. At The Moore Law Firm, PLLC, our attorneys routinely assist clients in the Morgantown area and beyond as they take action against discrimination in the workplace. We have helped many West Virginia individuals hold their employers accountable, and we can help you as well.
Recognizing Discrimination When It Occurs
If you feel that you are being mistreated in a manner that is different from your peers, it could be more than just having a difficult supervisor. Misconduct in the workplace happens, and when it is discriminatory, it can be legally actionable. Some examples of discrimination can include:
- Discrimination based upon race
- Discrimination based upon gender
- Discrimination based upon age
- Discrimination based upon sexual orientation
If you are a member of a protected class, you do have federal rights. If you have been denied advancement, demoted, harassed or fired based on discriminatory practices, our lawyers can help. You may also have a viable claim if you were turned down for a job due to discrimination. Consulting with an experienced employment law attorney can give you clarity regarding your case.
