wallstreetfighter :

Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification

wallstreetfighter :

This is a common situation, discrimination is regulated by State and Federal Civil Rights laws,

wallstreetfighter :

A discrimination claim can be filed either with the state administrative agency, the West Virginia Human Rights Commissionor the federal administrative agency, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The two agencies have what is called a “work-sharing agreement,” which means that the agencies cooperate with each other to process claims. Filing a claim with both agencies is unnecessary, as long as you indicate to one of the agencies that you want it to “cross-file” the claim with the other agency. Recent changes in WVHRC administration and complaint evaluation processes have led some attorneys to recommend against this venue for enforcement of the WVHRA.


To file a claim with the WVHRC, contact your closest office below. More information about filing a claim with the WVHRC can be found at http://www.wvf.state.wv.us/wvhrc/.
