When you are hurt on the job, workers know they must file for workers’ compensation in order to help meet expenses while they recover. Unfortunately, some employers have a history of retaliating against persons who file for injury-related claims.
Quid Pro Quo Matters in Charleston, WV
In the workplace, sexual harassment could be caused by a co-worker or by a person in management who accosts a subordinate employee, or vice-versa. One such abusive scenario involves ‘quid pro quo,’ often where a superior asks for sexual favors from an employee in exchange for being hired, promoted, or to keep their job. Even if this happens once, in West Virginia it may be enough for a case if it involves losing work or your job.
Whistleblowers + Unethical Companies = Volatile Workplace
A whistleblower, by common definition, brings the shortcomings or safety risks of a business to public awareness. If the business is the same company that employs you, this establishes risk involved in making claims in a whistleblower capacity. Unethical companies and whistleblowers can create a volatile workplace. An unethical company may attempt to dissuade employees from speaking out by making examples of whistleblowers in their organization.
Hostile Work Environments Often Mean Discrimination
