Change Comes to the Commonwealth – A Virginia Employment Law Update

Despite the disruptions caused by the Coronavirus, the Virginia General Assembly has been extremely active this spring, passing nearly a dozen new employment laws.  In just a few months, Virginia has gone from being the “wild west” of the DMV to having a broad nexus of new laws providing Virginia employees a wide range of protections much akin to their neighbors across the river.

From restrictions on the use of non-competes, to the expansion of the Commonwealth’s non-discrimination laws, to increases to the minimum wage, just to mention a few, Virginia employers have a lot to digest.

During this webinar, Paley Rothman’s employment law group will provide participants with an overview of Virginia’s many new employment laws and a discussion of what businesses should be doing to adapt to them.
