Wrongful termination claims occur when your employer fires you for an illegal reason or forces you to quit for an unlawful reason. Although West Virginia is an “at-will” state, “at-will” does not apply when your employer fires you or forces you to quit for an illegal reason. If your employer fired you for a discriminatory reason or retaliated against you for reporting protected workplace violations, you may be able to take action against your employer and file a lawsuit for wrongful termination.
The following are the types of damages that may be available in wrongful termination cases:
- Back Pay
- Front Pay
- Court Costs & Attorneys' Fees: At Bailess Smith, we only get paid unless you recover from a lawsuit or settlement.
- Damages for Mental Anguish
- Damages for Inconvenience
- Damages for Embarrassment
- Damages for Loss of Dignity
- Damages for Aggravation
- Punitive Damages
