What are common FMLA violations?

Companies in West Virginia that fit criteria for complying with the Federal Medical Leave Act must offer the benefits to any eligible employee. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, if you have worked for your employer for at least 12 months and have put in a minimum of 1,250 hours over the last year, you are likely eligible. Unfortunately, FMLA violations are not uncommon in the workplace. Here are a few common violations that you should have on your radar when you apply for leave.

Identifying violations of the Equal Pay Act

All of the hard work that you put into your education and/or vocational training will hopefully pay off by you securing a job with a reputable company in Charleston. Yet as many of the clients that we here at The Grubb Law Group have worked with in the past can attest to, simply getting your foot in the door of a company does not necessarily mean that the opportunities for an employer to discriminate against you have ended. It is often expected that you will encounter a workplace hierarchy (especially in terms of compensation) when you become part of a company. However, the basis of that hierarchy should not be discriminatory. 

The growing concern of sexual misconduct in the workplace

With the Hollywood sexual misconduct scandals, the "Me Too" movement and other politically charged topics landing under the recent spotlight, employees across the country are wondering if they may be experiencing some level of abuse within the workplace. Although the country has seen significant progress in directing accountability and spreading awareness about the issue, many West Virginian workers nevertheless feel unsafe while on the job.
