Did Your Employer Fail To Give You A Final Check?

When you have worked for an employer for any length of time, you reasonably expect to be compensated promptly for your service. Receiving the full amount of pay you are due becomes particularly critical if you are laid off or terminated. Your former employer has an obligation to pay you in a timely manner for all the wages and compensation to which you are entitled.

The employment laws in West Virginia state that terminated employees should receive their final paychecks within 72 hours of being laid off or fired. If your employer fails to pay what you are owed, it may face significant penalties under the law.

If you were terminated and did not receive your final paycheck or you don't believe you were paid all you were owed, call Romano & Associates, PLLC, in Charleston. Our attorneys will carefully review your situation. Our mission is to uphold your rights as an employee and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
