Fighting Discrimination at Work

Discrimination in the workplace can take many forms and often has an adverse effect on an individual's career path. The law prohibits discrimination in all aspects of the employer/employee relationship. No matter the industry, it is illegal for any employer to make decisions regarding hiring, termination, promotions, job assignments, or other aspects of employment based on protected characteristics.

In West Virginia, these characteristics include:

  • Age
  • AIDS or HIV status
  • Citizenship status
  • Disability
  • National origin
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sex, including pregnancy and childbirth
  • Skin color

Which Laws Protect Employees From Discrimination?

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 pensures representatives and work candidates from employment discrimination predicated by race, color, religion, sex and origin of birth. It incorporates all periods of employment counting enrollment and terminations.

  • The Equal Pay Act of 1963 shields men and women who perform substantially equal work in the same establishmentfrom sex-based discrimination in the form of wages or benefits.

  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 protects individuals 40 years of age or older from age-based employment discrimination.

  • The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 protects employees and job applicants from employment discrimination predicated on incapacitation. It includes employees and job applicants. It additionally requires Federal agencies to make plausible accommodation of any known disabilities within reason.

If you believe that you have been discriminated against in your workplace, do not hesitate to contact Hoosier Law Firm, PLLC. We are here to help! Our team has experience defending employees that have faced a variety of discriminations. Call us today for a consultation!

Filing a Discrimination Complaint

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC, regulates and handles workplace discrimination claims. Companies with 15 or more employees are covered by Title VII, a federal law that prohibits discrimination in the work place, among other acts. West Virginia, however, takes it a step further, lowering the minimum number of employees to 12 for discrimination claims or one employee for issues dealing with wage discrimination based on gender.

Our Charleston employment lawyer can determine if you have a claim and recommend the right course of action to favorably resolve your issue.
