Long considered an employer-friendly state, as of July 1, 2020 Virginia is changing that by redefining the employment landscape. Join attorneys from Jackson Lewis P.C.’s Washington D.C. Region, Richmond and Norfolk offices for a two-part webinar series that will examine these new laws, explain the risks employers now face, and provide strategies and best practices to prepare for the changes to come.

Part Two

  • The Virginia Values Act expands the scope of the Virginia Human Rights Act (VHRA) to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, but also fundamentally changes the legal rights and remedies available to employees under the VHRA and greatly increases the costs and risks of litigation for employers.
  • The whistleblower law creates an immediate private right of action for employees who are retaliated against for complaining to a supervisor, among other protected activities.
  • The restrictive covenant law prohibits employers from entering into and enforcing a restrictive covenant against employees who earn less than the average weekly wage in Virginia.
