West Virginia Wage Payment And Collection Act

If your employment is terminated — no matter what the reason — your employer is required to pay you any unpaid wages that you have not yet received along with any accrued benefits that have a monetary value. When an employer fails to meet this obligation, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney to ensure your rights are upheld.

Understanding The Wage Payment And Collection Act

Under West Virginia's Wage Payment and Collection Act, your employer must ensure that your final paycheck, including accrued benefits, is delivered within 72 hours of your termination or no later than the next regularly scheduled pay day. If an employer fails or refuses to do this, the employee is entitled to three times the final paycheck amount. The employer is also required to pay attorney fees.
