    Default Fired for Sexual Harassment Over a False Complaint

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: West Virginia

    A rig manager was fired for sexual harassment based on a co-worker's complaint, but the co-worker was coerced to make a false complaint.

    If the employer agrees that the accusation was false, then the employer may rescind the termination.

    Otherwise, the rig manager should discuss the details with a plaintiff-side employment lawyer, to see if it might be possible to persuade the employer to rescind its decision and to evaluate other possible courses of action.

    I am curious about just how you know the accusation was false and coerced. Do you have actual proof of what you are saying? If so, then the injured employee should see an attorney. If not, then this is just your opinion, and you are apparently not even one of the parties to the dispute.
