How can sexual harassment be prevented at work?

Sexual harassment is not only unlawful, it also creates a hostile working environment. It's incumbent upon management to take the proper steps to discourage sexual harassment and to help workers who make complaints about improper behavior. The Balance offers the following information to help business owners, as well as employees, address this contentious issue. 

Important Changes to WV Used Car Sales

Starting on July 1, 2019, it will be legal in West Virginia for car dealers to sell used vehicles without any warranty whatsoever for the first time. Before this change to the law, all vehicles sold by a dealer came with at least an implied warranty that they were "merchantable," meaning that they were fit to drive on the roads and would pass inspection for a reasonable period of time. But, starting on July 1, 2019, certain vehicles may be sold by dealers, even if they are not operable, have major defects, or are rebuilt wrecks. They can even be sold "as is" if they cannot pass state inspection. Beware! If you purchase an "as is" vehicle, the dealer will have no obligation to repair any problems with the vehicle.

After multiple deaths, banning inclined sleepers a next step

Consumer products designed for infant care usually have to undergo significant testing before they are sold publicly. Because infants are vulnerable and unable to communicate their concerns or discomforts, the products designed for their use have to be especially safe and functional. For many families in West Virginia, the process of researching reliable and safe products to use for their infant children is a critical step in their effort to select an option that will serve the desired purpose without compromising the well-being of their child. 

What should I know about nursing breaks at work?

Federal law stipulates that new mothers must have time for nursing breaks at work. It's important for women to understand their rights in this case, especially if they've been violated and steps must be taken to hold an employer accountable. The Office on Women's Health offers the following guidelines so you can rest assured your rights are being honored. 

Using OEM parts for vehicle repairs

There is something to be said for the sense of security that comes from knowing that one is the first person to use a product they have purchased. It is often for this very reason why many in Charleston will buy a new vehicle when buying a used car might save them money. For them, the knowledge that the car's parts are brand new (and thus should be in optimal condition) is worth the added expense. Yet accidents and incidents may happen that can quickly put a newer vehicle in the repair shop. The question then becomes what type of parts will go back into it. 

How do food recalls work?

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer and the official start of grilling season. It’s an unfortunate time for sausages to face a recall over food safety, but that’s exactly what’s happening to Johnsonville Jalapeno Cheddar smoked sausages.

What to know before purchasing a used car

Used cars can provide consumers with access to relatively new and lightly used vehicles for often a fraction of the cost of a new car. Whether you choose to browse for vehicles online, at a used car lot or elsewhere, you can often find a great deal.

Lawsuit prompts changes to parental leave policy

When people in Charleston hear the words "class action lawsuit," they may quickly conjure up thoughts of hundreds of plaintiffs uniting to take on some giant corporate entity whose blatantly reckless (and often criminal) action has caused untold harm to countless victims. While this may accurately describe some class action cases, it should be remembered that all this is required for a class action lawsuit is that a group of individuals have a shared grievance against the same entity. That grievance need not always be injurious, either. In some cases, it may be something as simple as ensuring equal treatment.
