Employment Law Update in Virginia

OnDemand Webinar (88 minutes)

Gain a better understanding of the most pressing Virginia employment laws and keep your company compliant.Virginia employment law has historically developed primarily through the common law. Court precedent has defined the scope and nature of employee rights in the state. And, in many areas, federal law has been the primary touchstone. That has now changed. A wave of legislative enactments in 2020-2021 has dramatically altered the landscape for Virginia employers. Some of the changes reverse decades of case law, and new claims exist where none were before. It is crucial for companies operating in Virginia, and the lawyers who advise them, to know and understand these legal changes.
