Alexandria, Virginia – February 10, 2016 – The Brown Firm PLLC of Alexandria, VA has released a new online resource for employment law, including useful information on breach of employment contracts. Alexandria, VA is highly a highly populated, urban area where many professionals are currently under some form of employment contract. The Brown Firm PLLC hopes that these new online materials will fill a gap for online content containing basic information on employee and employer rights, as well as the legal protections employees have against wrongful termination.
The new resources introduced by Brown Firm PLLC today cover a broad range of employment law related topics in addition to breach of employment contracts, including whistleblower protections and retaliation in Virginia, bringing suit for wrongful termination, how to determine damages in a wrongful termination case, and information on non-compete clauses in employment contracts.
Generally, the majority of employment relationships between employer and employee are described legally as “at-will”. This means that the employer and employee may terminate the working relationship at any time, with or without notice, for any reason. However, this does not imply that the employee remains unprotected from illegal actions on the part of an employer. If an employee is fired for a reason deemed illegal by the Commonwealth of Virginia, or the federal government, they may be able to bring suit against their former employer for wrongful termination or breach of an employment contract.
Illegal reasons for terminating an employee in the Commonwealth of Virginia include discrimination based on race, creed, country of origin, sex, gender, or age. Additionally, with few exceptions an employee may not be let go for exercising a right guaranteed to them by Virginia common law, statutory law, or federal law.
For more information on the breach of employment contracts, wrongful termination, non-compete clauses, and a myriad of other important employment related issues, visit the blog section of the The Brown Firm PLLC website.
