Can I pursue legal action if I was fired for no reason in Virginia?

It is important that you recognize that Virginia is an “employment-at-will” state. Basically, this means that employers in Virginia are permitted to hire, or fire, employees virtually at any time, and for any reason, and even for no reason. Because of this, if your employer has just told you that it has terminated your position at your company, you may not have a wrongful termination case.

But, if you are able to prove that your employer fired you as a result of unlawful reasons, including discriminatory reasons, for instance, because of your race or gender, you may have a valid wrongful termination claim. You will want to understand that both state and federal law prohibits employers from firing, or otherwise discriminating against employees based on certain protected classes. Some examples of protected classes include national origin, age, disabilities, and religious beliefs. If you believe you were wrongfully fired as a result of any of the above discriminatory reasons, you may be entitled to legal action. Reach out to our firm today to discuss the details of your case and your options.

What steps should I take after I was unfairly fired?

If you feel that you were unfairly terminated from your place of employment, it is in your best interest to request a written statement from your employer about the reason he or she terminated your position.  However, the employer is not required to give you a reason. If the reason provided by your employer does not make sense, or you believe the reasoning is evidence of discrimination, do not wait to reach out to our firm today to speak with our wrongful termination lawyer. Our firm has the knowledge and experience to assess your case and determine the best strategy moving forward. The firm has helped workers who are wrongfully terminated pursue the justice they deserve, and we are more than ready to do that for you. We are just one call away.
