Were you recently fired by your employer? Do you think your employer didn’t have a valid reason for terminating your employment? If so, review the checklist below to determine if you have a claim for wrongful termination:
DOES YOUR WORKPLACE TOLERATE SEXUAL HARASSMENT?
No employee should have to put up with sexual harassment in the workplace, but unfortunately, some employees are unfairly targeted by their employer just for reporting sexual harassment. If you were fired from your job after complaining about sexual harassment at work, you may have a case for wrongful termination. If you have not been fired, but the work environment has become hostile after your complaints of sexual harassment, you may also have a hostile work environment case.
HAS A SUPERVISOR oR BOSS SEXUALLY HARASSED YOU?
A supervisor does not get a free pass to sexually harass employees. Employers are responsible for the damages caused by supervisors who sexually harass employees in the workplace. If you have been sexually harassed or made to feel uncomfortable by a supervisor, you may have a hostile work environment case.
HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED RACE DISCRIMINATION AT WORK?
Under the law, all employees are entitled to a workplace free of sexual harassment, relation, and discrimination. If you believe your employer fired you because of your race, age, sex, or disability, then you need to consult with an experienced lawyer to find out how to file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or West Virginia Human Rights Commission.
DOES YOUR EMPLOYER TREAT YOU DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE OF YOUR AGE?
Have you noticed that your boss tends to treat the younger employee better than workers over the age of 40? Under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the West Virginia Human Rights Act, employees 40 years of age and older are protected from age-based discrimination at work. The ADEA and WVHRA covers adverse actions such as job promotions, payroll, employment benefits, layoffs, and firings.
