Hold Your Employer Accountable To The Law

Work is an essential part of most people's lives — even if the work you do is not a central part of your identity, the ability to provide for yourself and your family probably is. So, it's no small thing to secure a stable job and to feel grateful for it. But every working person has a right to a safe and professional working environment, too.

When the behavior of supervisors or co-workers violates that sense of safety and professionalism, you have a right to hold these parties accountable under West Virginia employment law. At The Law Offices of Brandon S. Steele, we will give you the information you need to navigate the law and reach the outcome you're seeking. Attorney Brandon S. Steele is an aggressive advocate for his clients, and he will not back down from a fight in court or in settlement negotiations.

Take Legal Action When Facing Discrimination In The Workplace

In 2016, West Virginia became a "right-to-work" state, meaning that at unionized workplaces, employees are not required to join a union or pay dues in order to benefit from the results of contract negotiations between the union and an employer. As a result, unions have fewer financial resources, and therefore in many cases their influence has diminished as a result of the Establishing West Virginia Workplace Freedom Act.

That means that today, one of the most important remaining legal tools to assert employees' rights in West Virginia is the state's Human Rights Act, which prohibits many forms of workplace discrimination, including discrimination based on:

  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • National origin
  • Gender, including sexual harassment
  • Sexual orientation
  • Religion
  • Age
  • Pregnancy or other familial status
  • Disability

Legally speaking, disability discrimination is an especially complicated form of discrimination since it is regulated both by state employment law as well as the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. ADA violations are a serious matter; when an employer fails to make reasonable accommodations to facilitate an employee performing his or her job, you have a right to take legal action.
