At P. Todd Phillips & Associates, we have handled a wide range of employment cases in the Morgantown area. Many of our cases have been settled out of court. Some of the employment law cases we have handled include:
Employers and employees can end their employment relationship at any time with or without a reason if no written contract exists. Otherwise, an employee can only be fired for reasons stated in the contract. Employers cannot fire someone for a discriminatory reason or if the employee was the target of harassment. They also cannot fire anyone for retaliation of a complaint against an employee. Other prohibited reasons include:
No employment advertisement or help wanted ad can advertise for or discriminate against applicants based on race, sex, national origin, religion and disability. Employers may not ask job applicants questions regarding national origin, age, sexual orientation, marital status, children or if they have an arrest record. If you feel you have come across discrimination during the hiring process, please call our offices at P. Todd Phillips & Associates.
Harassment can occur if there is a hostile work environment based on an employee's age, gender, or, in the case of sexual harassment, even if sexual favors have been requested. At P. Todd Phillips & Associates we provide assistance for employees by ending unlawful harassment and in recovering damages they may have suffered. Give us a call to get this process started right away.
