West Virginia is an "at-will" employment state. This means that unless you have an employment contract, your employer can fire you at any time and for any reason, as long as it is not an illegal reason. Examples of illegal reasons include:

  • Discrimination: Firing you because of your age, disability, gender, pregnancy, race, religion, national origin or other protected class
  • Retaliation: Firing you for exercising a workplace right such as applying for workers' compensation, filing a sexual harassment or discrimination claim, supporting the claim of another person, or for being a whistleblower

If your employer illegally terminated you, you can seek compensation for past and future lost income, emotional distress and punitive damages. If your employer takes the case to court and loses, they may also have to pay your attorney fees.
