Federal, State, and Local Employment Law
Labor and employment law is heavily regulated. There are numerous and overlapping Federal, State, and Local laws that apply. In addition, there are some unique differences that can impact the strategies that our clients may utilize. For example, a federal Title VII discrimination claim requires the employer to have a minimum of 15 employees for an employee to maintain an action against the employer. However, Virginia state statutes require there to only be 6 employees. This can sometimes lead to employers who think that they are not exposed to the federal statutes to behave poorly; unknowingly, exposing themselves to state statutes. Similarly, some local county laws further reduce the requirements. It is worth noting that the differences between the federal, state, and local employment discrimination laws can be significant, including the damages available and statutory filing deadlines. We encourage all clients to speak with a knowledgeable and skilled Virginia employment lawyer who understands the options available at the federal, state, and local level to best protect and enforce their clients legal rights.
