Wrongful Discharge is a phrase that covers many kinds of illegal employer conduct that results in the loss of someone’s job.  It could be because you filed a workers’ compensation claim and they fired you when you could not return to work; it could be because you resisted your boss’s sexual advances; it could be because you reported someone’s illegal activity at work.  While West Virginia remains what is known as an “at-will” employment state, there are enough exceptions to that rule to make it very difficult for an employer to fire someone without any reason at all.  If you’ve been fired for a reason that sounds fishy or if you’ve been given no reason at all, you may have a claim for wrongful discharge.
