Our attorneys help put lives back together
Being fired from a job can be a traumatic experience. Sometimes, there's a reason why employers take such drastic measures. But in many cases, hard-working people lose their jobs for unacceptable reasons.
Technically, most West Virginia employers can fire someone at any time. That's because most jobs are "at will," which gives employers the right to terminate someone's employment at any time. Even so, there are many state and federal rules and regulations that employers must abide by before making the decision to terminate your employment, and when they break those rules, you may have a wrongful termination case.
If you believe you or a loved one was wrongfully terminated, knowing what to do next can be confusing and overwhelming. Fortunately, you have legal options available to you. And our skilled West Virginia attorneys can help you explore all of them.
At Klie Law Offices, our lawyers have dedicated our careers to fighting for the rights of workers throughout West Virginia. We thoroughly understand how the state's legal system works and we're not afraid to take on companies that unfairly fired someone from their job.
Common legal issues
There are many legal issues that often come into play in wrongful termination cases. Some of the legal issues we regularly help people deal with if they have been wrongfully terminated include:
- Delayed Final Paycheck
- Contract Violations
- Protected Category Termination
- Human Rights Violations
- Retaliatory Termination
As your attorney, we can fight to get your old job back. But if that's not a possibility, our legal team can help you explore other legal options, including filing a lawsuit against your employer for wrongful termination.
Why choose us
Wrongful termination cases can be extremely complicated. And in many cases, employers will have an entire team of attorneys defending the company's actions. That's why you need our legal team on your side to level the playing field.
We thoroughly understand all the state and federal laws and regulations governing wrongful termination cases in West Virginia. We also have extensive experience dealing with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which handles many wrongful termination complaints.
Another important aspect to consider - employees wrongfully terminated often only have a limited amount of time to take legal against their employer. In many cases, the statute of limitations (deadline to take legal action) is two years. That might seem like a long time. But building a strong wrongful termination case often takes a great deal of time and effort.
