Know what unfair trade practices are unlawful in West Virginia

State and federal government regulators often share messages such as "buyer beware" and "if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is" when letting consumers know how to keep themselves and their money safe. They do this in hopes that they won't fall victim to false advertising, dishonest sales tactics and other deceptive trade practices. Many Charleston residents do, though. West Virginia lawmakers have passed various laws in recent years aimed at protecting consumers and discouraging would-be schemers from engaging in unlawful practices.

Asserting your rights if you're working

If you work for an hourly wage, the time that you spend working is very important. If, like most workers, you are covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), you will have the right to be paid overtime when you are working more than 40 hours in a week. The FLSA offers many additional legal protections for those who work for an hourly wage. This includes the right to minimum wage, break times and the right to be paid for all hours worked.

West Virginia employers can fire you for (almost) any reason

West Virginia (WV) is an at-will state for employment, much like many others in the United States. Employers who uphold this doctrine can generally sever the employment relationship that they share with a worker for any non-discriminatory reason and at any point in time. Employers may be unable to terminate a worker if their employees are subject to a contract or local or state laws prohibit their dismissal.
