It is unlawful in West Virginia to "visually portray" (by means of any image-capturing device including video cameras) another person, without their knowledge, while that person is in any state of undress, and in a place where that person would have a reasonable expectation of privacy. Additionally, West Virginia specifically forbids employers to operate any electronic surveillance system (including video) for the purpose of monitoring employees in the places designated "for the health or personal comfort of the employees or for safeguarding of their possessions, such as rest rooms, shower rooms, locker rooms, dressing rooms and employee lounges."
