As far as purchases go, few are bigger than buying a new vehicle in Charleston. By "new," many assume that to mean a brand new vehicle fresh from a manufacturer's assembly line. Yet in reality, many of the 17.22 million vehicles that the National Automobile Dealers Association reports were sold in 2018 were previously used. The nightmare shared by every buyer of a used car is that they will be saddled with a lemon, yet local lemon laws protect them by putting the responsibility on dealers and manufacturers to deal with defective vehicles. How the law requires that such vehicles be dealt with can cause quite a bit of confusion.
We have covered many facets of employment law, from discrimination to workplace injuries and other challenges that people may face while on the job. However, wage and hour violations should not be overlooked either, and many workers have been mistreated when it comes to the denial of overtime pay. If your employer has refused to pay you for overtime when you were legally entitled to payments, it is pivotal to take action swiftly. Unfortunately, many employers have been allowed to get away with this behavior, which is completely unacceptable.
As an older person seeking employment in West Virginia, you may find that your age and the extent of your experience ultimately hinder, rather than help, you. While you may assume that, the more experience you have, the more of an asset you are to an employer, some employers feel differently and opt to hire younger, less experienced workers who they can pay less than their older colleagues. At the Grubb Law Group, we recognize that there are certain laws in place that prevent employers from discriminating against workers aged 40 years and older, and we have helped many victims of age discrimination in the workplace pursue appropriate recourse.
