The Whistle-blower Law in WV: New Consequences for Violations

In 2017, West Virginia enacted legislation amending the law designed to protect employees of the state and its political subdivisions from retaliation against whistle-blowers in WV and allows such an employee to bring a civil action for redress if the State or a political subdivision discharges, threatens or otherwise discriminates or retaliates against an employee because the employee makes a good faith report to the employer or an appropriate authority of instances of wrongdoing or waste by a governmental entity.
