On July 1, Virginia went from being a somewhat employer-friendly state to one of the riskiest states in the nation with regard to employment litigation.  HR professionals now have the responsibility to help their employers cope with this risk.  In an October 7 virtual presentation, the Chair of Kaufman & Canoles’ Employment Team, Burt Whitt will define this enhanced risk and provide practical guidance to HR professionals on how to avoid/limit risks in this new Virginia employment litigation reality.
