Victim of sex discrimination? We can help.

Every West Virginia worker has the right to a workplace that is free of harassment and discrimination of any kind. If you have experienced harassment or sex discrimination, it can be difficult to know how to proceed in order to protect your rights. Improper treatment at work can make it difficult to do your job well and may affect your emotional health.

Sexual harassment and sex discrimination in the workplace are illegal.If you have been passed over for a promotion in favor of a male with the same qualifications and seniority as you, that is discrimination based on gender. Additionally, female employees should be paid the same amount as men for equal work. Female employees also should be offered the same benefits and the same amount of vacation time as men.

Even in today's society, harassment and discrimination based on gender are still a problem in the workplace. Some women who are victims of this type of unlawful behavior do not reach for help or report this mistreatment out of fear of retaliation from their employers. No matter what your concerns may be, we can help you work through the details of your case and determine what the best course of action may be.

You are entitled to certain rights as an employee in West Virginia. If you have been threatened, harassed or discriminated against because of gender, you would be wise to protect these entitlements by seeking the assistance of a lawyer knowledgeable in worker rights. If you are a victim of sex discrimination, schedule a case evaluation with a member of our team to understand your options for legal recourse and possible financial compensation.
