Taking a Stand against Wrongful Termination
Losing your job is a uniquely stressful event. When the source of your livelihood is suddenly removed, everything you know can become clouded with uncertainty. If the grounds for your dismissal were illegal, however, you may have a pathway to compensation.
At The Moore Law Firm, PLLC, we help individuals in the Morgantown area fight back against wrongful termination. We feature considerable experience in this area and work tirelessly on behalf of our clients to seek what they deserve.
When a Firing Is Unlawful
While an individual can be fired for many legitimate reasons, employers do have certain limitations. A successful wrongful termination claim is one that can prove your employer acted unlawfully. Some examples of illegal grounds for termination include:
- A termination that goes against federal and state anti-discrimination laws
- A termination that is the result of a retaliation against an employee
- A termination that stems from sexual harassment
- A termination that goes against an employment contract
In West Virginia, workers do have rights. If you feel that your dismissal was unjust, you may have grounds for a wrongful termination claim. Consulting with an experienced employment lawyer, such as one of ours at The Moore Law Firm, PLLC, can give you a better understanding of your situation.
