Employment Law

Your Right to Work

Most Americans believe they have a right to their jobs. If you haven't done anything wrong, it hardly seems fair that you should be wrongfully fired or harassed at work. You need an attorney to fight for your rights in the workplace so that you get a fair shake.

It's like a David and Goliath situation. Your employer has tremendous resources and power to beat you in a lawsuit. The employer is Goliath, you're David, and we're your slingshot. We will take Goliath down.

Our West Virginia employment law attorneys have more than 100 combined years of experience. At Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard, P.L.L.C., we will fight for your rights in the workplace.

Types of Employment Cases

There are many ways that employees' rights are violated in the workplace. We have experience with many different types of employment law cases, including:

  • Wrongful termination: When an employer fires you for an illegal reason, we will stand up for your rights.
  • Harassment: This is unwelcome conduct at work, based on race, age, gender, religion, disability or sexual orientation. This conduct can be physical or verbal and it can come from either a superior or a colleague.
  • Discrimination: If you feel as if you have been discriminated against - contact us.
  • Retaliation: Retaliation occurs when an employee either complains about an illegal situation at work (this person is often called a "whistleblower") or asserts their legal rights in the workplace. The employer retaliates by firing or demoting the employee, or by creating a hostile work environment.
  • Failure to accommodate a disability: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) insists that employers provide their disabled employees with certain reasonable accommodations. Not providing these accommodations is a form of discrimination.
  • Labor Law:  Delayed Final Paycheck

Whatever your specific workplace issue, we can fight on your behalf. Most Americans, including jury members, believe in the right to keep your job and be free from a hostile work environment. Juries are usually sympathetic to workplace harassment and discrimination cases.
