Discrimination in the Workplace in West Virginia
Discrimination in West Virginia
Employment discrimination can often feel difficult to prove, especially when a worker is in the midst of the situation. Discrimination can come from a few different sources, such as being overlooked for promotions, even though you have applied repeatedly for qualified jobs. You may also feel pressured, retaliated against, lost benefits, or been demoted for trying to improve unsafe working conditions or helping a co-worker who was being harassed. You may have been retaliated for taking FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) when you returned to work.
Even more difficult to prove can be when discrimination occurs based on such factors as age, sex, race, or sexual orientation. Ethnic discrimination may sometimes arise over time, and when it affects your life and your professional work situation, it may be best to speak with a knowledgeable attorney to ensure your rights are protected.
