Employment Discrimination

The Olivio Law Firm, PLLC has extensive experience representing workers in employment disputes arising from improper company practices. The law regarding relations between employer and employee is complex, often governed by both state and federal laws and regulations. You may have heard that West Virginia is an “at will” employee state.

While true, the law does not give employers unchecked authority to treat employees however the employer may wish. There are numerous exceptions and limitations to the “at will” employee doctrine.

The Olivio Law Firm, PLLC can help when the employer has crossed the line.

My experience with Michael was remarkable. I was injured in a car accident, overwhelmed by my symptoms and inundated by paperwork. While I was trying to make a difficult decision related to surgery, Michael negotiated the highest settlement available under the law.
