How do I know if my vehicle was involved in a recall?

There are many reasons you may have missed a recall notice. Perhaps you have recently moved to West Virginia from out of state and still get your mail elsewhere, for example. Luckily, it is quite easy to determine whether your vehicle has been involved in an official recall notice.

Understanding the legal obligation to accept returns

Consumers in Charleston likely maintain confidence in the wisdom of their purchases based upon the notion that if they are not happy with the products they buy, they can always return them. Most might assume that retailers are bound by law to take back products that customers are unsatisfied with. Yet at the same time, merchandise returns cost retailers billions every year ($369 in 2018 alone, according to Appriss.com). Thus, lawmakers must walk the delicate line between protecting consumers' rights while not inhibiting the success of local businesses. 

How can you tell if your employer is retaliating against you?

These figures may cause many drivers in West Virginia to reconsider the safety of their vehicles.

A fine line between business needs and discrimination

All throughout the south and including in West Virginia, Walmart has long been a popular brand and store for area residents. One of the hallmarks of Walmart has been that it has provided many great employment opportunities for people at all levels. The strong employment history of Walmart includes providing ample jobs for people with disabilities. This, however, may be set to change and is causing some serious controversy for the mega-retailer.

EEOC charges W.Va. staffing agencies with abuse, discrimination

Federal laws such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act are in place to ensure that all American workers have the opportunity to work in a safe, humane environment for a fair wage. The Equal Opportunity Employment Commission recently brought a lawsuit against four West Virginia-based staffing agencies, accusing them violating these federal regulations by subjecting Latino workers that they recruited to work in an Alabama poultry processing plant to abusive and discriminatory treatment.
