“Elections have consequences,” President Obama said in 2009. That couldn’t be any clearer than in Virginia in 2020, as the Commonwealth’s Circuit Courts brace for the July 1 availability of powerful new causes of action for employees who allege discrimination, whistleblower reprisal, and wage and hour violations.
Join us on Tuesday, June 30th from 12:00-1:30 PM ET as we outline how your practice will change due to the new laws taking effect — a direct outcome of the November 2019 election, in which voters gave Democrats full control of legislative power in Richmond.
Top local attorneys from both sides, management and employee, will walk us through the new laws’ most important provisions: What are the available damages for each cause of action? Are there administrative filing prerequisites? What are the elements and standards of proof? What are the distinctions between Virginia’s new statutes and their federal counterparts. We’ll answer all these questions — plus any more that you raise during this interactive event co-sponsored by the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association [MWELA] and the Arlington County Bar Association.
Opening remarks made by our own Rex Flynn. Moderated by R. Scott Oswald, Managing Principal at The Employment Law group, P.C. & Bench-Bar Chair of the Washington Employment Lawyers Association. Speakers include: Kara M. Ariail, Partner, Holland & Knight LLP; Adam Nadelhaft, Senior Attorney, Charlson Bredehoft Cohen & Brown, P.C.; Mark Hanna, Founding Partner, Murphy Anderson PLLC; Thomas P.
