Disability Discrimination

Our attorneys will protect your rights

Several federal laws exist that were created to protect the rights of people with disabilities. These laws include the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which was first passed in 1990 and amended in 2008.

Unfortunately, some employers ignore these federal laws and as well as state rules and regulations in West Virginia designed to protect people living with a disability. This is often true in workplace discrimination cases, where some people with a disability face persecution.

Fortunately, people with disabilities have rights. And our law firm can fight for them. The experienced West Virginia disability discrimination attorneys at Klie Law Offices know how the legal system works in our state and we have the case results to prove it. That’s why we’re eager to meet with you and explain how we can help you.

Common claims

Disability discrimination claims in the workplace can cover a wide range. Some of the most common – and often most serious – disability discrimination claims we handle include:

  • Employer failing to make reasonable accommodations for workers with disabilities.
  • Not hiring someone because they have a disability.
  • Not promoting someone with a disability.
  • Pay inequities between worker with a disability and co-workers.
  • Wrongful termination of employee with a disability.
  • Hostile work environment for people with disabilities.

Employers have a responsibility to treat everyone in the workplace fairly and with respect. And if they refuse to do so – or do not reprimand employees who disobey these rules – they deserve to be held accountable for their actions. That’s why you need us on your side.

How we can help

Our attorneys have years of experience handling such complex cases throughout West Virginia. As your lawyer, we can meet directly with your employer on your behalf in an attempt to resolve your legal matter. We can also help you file a complaint with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the U.S. Department of Justice if necessary.

Another option available to you is filing a discrimination lawsuit against your employer. If you decide to take this route, we will file your lawsuit on your behalf and be there with you during all court proceedings.
