For more than 90 years, Kay Casto & Chaney PLLC has been one of West Virginia’s leading law firms. Our attorneys and staff are devoted to quality legal services for all clients. We are proud of our firm’s long history and stellar reputation. We live up to it every day. We have large-firm talent in a mid-size firm setting; this asset allows our attorneys to provide service and value to our clients on a personal level.
Our team is distinguished by its extensive knowledge and experience acquired through years of practice in both private practice and public service. Members of our firm teach law courses at West Virginia University and lecture at various venues with targeted audiences.
Kay Casto & Chaney’s employment law practice relies upon the various talents, backgrounds, and experience of its members to represent and advise clients in this particular area of business.
A large part of our attorneys’ work is devoted to representation in all phases of litigation before administrative agencies and in state and federal courts. Our firm’s employment law attorneys regularly handle cases involving age, sex, race, disability, and gender discrimination, wage and hour issues, as well as retaliatory discharge and implied employment contract actions. Our firm represents clients in administrative proceedings before the West Virginia Human Rights Commission, the West Virginia Division of Labor, and the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The firm’s appellate practice has included cases before the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
Just as important as the firm’s litigation practice, however, is the attorneys’ risk management work. Our legal teams routinely advise and counsel clients to assist with the management of their workforce as a means of avoiding litigation before it is instituted.
With respect to specific matters in the workplace, our lawyers often advise clients regarding employee handbooks, wage and hour questions, internal investigations, discipline, and discharge decisions.
