Our attorneys fight for equality
Generations of women in our country fought hard for equal rights. That's why workplace discrimination cases on the basis of gender can be so upsetting. Instead of being treated as equal, some people treat female co-workers as second-class citizens.
Knowing what to do in such situations can be confusing. This is especially true if the woman being discriminated against has a long-standing working relationship with the co-worker or supervisor discriminating against them.
Fortunately, you're not alone. Our experienced West Virginia gender discrimination attorneys at Klie Law Offices can defend your rights and help build a strong legal case on your behalf. As a woman-led firm, we take these cases personally, and we understand the challenges you face. We know how the legal system works in West Virginia and what it takes to build a successful case.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 made it illegal to discriminate against workers on the basis of gender. Many other state and federal laws also exist protecting women's rights in the workplace. Even so, complaints of gender discrimination persist, including ones involving:
- Not hiring someone because they're a woman
- Being paid less than a male co-worker who does the same job
- Failure to promote
- Demoting employee
- Poor job review without just cause
- Wrongful termination
- Verbal threats
- Offensive comments
- Sexual harassment
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Physical assault
Employers need to take action to prevent a hostile work environment towards women. If they fail to do so, they should be held accountable for their actions. That's why it's critical that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible at our law firm about all your legal options.
