Human Rights Violations
Our attorneys fight for justice
Respect for human rights has been an essential part of our country for centuries. That’s why human rights violations are such a serious offense, especially if such violations involve the wrongful termination of an employee.
Knowing what to do in such a situation can be confusing. You know that your rights have been violated. But knowing what to do next might not be clear to most people, especially since many people have never dealt with such situations before.
Fortunately, you’re not alone. Our attorneys can help. At Klie Law Offices, our knowledgeable West Virginia lawyers have dedicated their careers to standing up for the rights of workers whose rights have been violated. We know how the legal system works and what needs to be done to make things right.
Human rights violations that result in an employee being wrongfully terminated cover a wide range. These can include an employee being fired due to:
- Complaining about workplace discrimination
- Filing a complaint about sexual harassment
- Complaining to supervisor about being bullied or physically assaulted at work
Other times, employees “voluntarily” quit due to persistent harassment or bullying in the workplace. In many cases, these workers reported such human rights violations to their supervisors. But nothing was done to address such behavior.
In all these cases – and many more – workers may have grounds for taking legal action against their employers for human rights violations. If you suspect this happened to you, make sure you protect your rights. Make sure you contact us.
We’re on your side
Our experienced attorneys know how to investigate such complex legal cases. We know what questions to ask, what evidence to look for and how to compile all that information into a strong, legal case.
Many state and federal laws exist to provide protections to people in the workplace. For example, employers cannot terminate individuals on the basis of a protected category, such as disability, race, gender or national origin.
