Wrongful Discharge - Employment

If you have been fired from your employment because of some discriminatory motive, based upon your age, race, color, gender, national origin, religion, disability, then you may have a claim for discriminatory wrongful termination. Generally speaking, if you were employed in an "at will" employment state, such as West Virginia and Pennsylvania, that means that your employer may fire you or you may quit at any time, without notice, and with or without good cause. However, you may have additional protection afforded by a contract, Union status (also a contract), by virtue of being a civil servant, or a statutorily protected employee. It is also unlawful for an employer to terminate an employee because for improper discriminatory motives, for whistleblowing or in violation of public policy.

West Virginia Retaliatory Discharge

West Virginia is an at-will employment state, but affords employees protection against wrongful discharge on the basis of discrimination or in retaliation for whistleblowing. West Virginia also protects employees from termination, where the purpose of the firing is against a substantial public policy, as set forth in an applicable law or regulation.
