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. 

What can you recover under the state's lemon law?

Few things may be more exciting than purchasing a new car from any one of Charleston's many dealerships. That new car smell you enjoy as you drive your vehicle home serves as a confirmation that your days of worrying about car troubles are over. Perhaps that is why it is so disheartening when issues do immediately begin to arise with a new vehicle. Your warranty protection ensures that such issues should be addressed by the dealership (or its agents) at no unreasonable additional cost to you. Yet you may find that service technicians are not miracle workers. 

Storage tank malfunction in fertility clinic prompts lawsuit

When asked what constitutes a class action lawsuit, most in Charleston would correctly cite the fact that such action involves multiple plaintiffs pursuing a similar claim against a single defendant. That may be the reason why many are confused when such actions are initiated by a single person. In the case of a class action, every plaintiff need not be present during court proceedings. The purpose of this type of action, in fact, is to save them from having to go through all the rigors required with a traditional lawsuit. A single representative is chosen to represent the class, and it is that person that becomes the face and voice of that group during proceedings. 

Taking a closer look at date labels on food products

If there is one product that everyone in Charleston needs, it is food. As such, you would think that legislators would do all that they can to ensure the products you buy at the grocery store are safe for consumption. If asked to identify the most apparent food quality safeguards mandated by law, you (like many others) might first guess expiration dates. Yet we at The Grubb Law Group are here to tell you that not everything you associate with quality is required by law. 

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.
