At Shaffer & Shaffer, we are dedicated to protecting workers all across West Virginia who have suffered from unfair treatment at work. Our employment law attorneys based in Madison can represent a broad range of employment law matters and help workers just like you hold your employer accountable for his or her actions. With decades of experience, skills, and legal knowledge on your side, we are well-equipped to advocate for your rights and seek legal remedies on your behalf.
As an at-will employment state, West Virginia employers have the right to terminate employees with or without a reason - as long as this reason does not violate the law. If you believe that you were fired illegally, contact a wrongful termination attorney about taking legal action.
Examples of wrongful termination:
By law, employers are prohibited from discriminating against any employee on the basis of his or her age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or disability. This can include discrimination in the hiring, promotion/demotion, and the firing of an employee. If your employer has shown a clear pattern of discrimination and unfair treatment towards you based on these factors, you may be able to recover legal damages through a discrimination claim.
If you have suffered from discrimination, have been illegally fired, or have another employment law dispute, contact us. We can review your situation and help you find the appropriate legal remedies to correct these injustices.
