Over Easter weekend, in what can only be described as a deluge of activity, Virginia’s Governor Ralph Northam signed a series of laws that fundamentally change the employment law landscape in the Commonwealth. These include a fundamental rewrite of the Virginia Human Rights Act, a very broad whistleblower protection law, the creation of a private right of action for a wage theft law that provides for treble damages, an employee misclassification law that presumes a worker is an employee, a law banning restrictive covenants for a broad swath of “low-wage” employees, a new minimum wage, and a law de-criminalizing marijuana possession for first offenses. Each of these laws impact Virginia employers who will no doubt still be reeling from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic when they go into effect in July. This presentation will explore what each of these new laws mean for Virginia employers and provide some practical tips on how to manage compliance after these new laws take effect.
