Virginia Adds Protections for Ethnic Origin

Ethnic origin has been added as a protected characteristic to the state’s antidiscrimination statute, effective July 1, 2024. The statute applies to employers with 15 or more employees, except for the unlawful discharge section, which applies to employers with six or more employees.

Veterans’ Benefits and Services Poster in the Making

Effective July 1, 2024, the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry—in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Services—will create a workplace poster with the following information about benefits and services available to veterans:

  • Department of Veterans Services programs, contact information, and website address;
  • Substance abuse and mental health treatment services;
  • Educational, workforce, and training resources;
  • Tax benefits;
  • Eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits under state or federal law;
  • Legal services; and
  • U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Crisis Line.

Once created, any employer in the Commonwealth may request the poster from the department and may display it in the workplace where other employee notices required by state or federal law are posted.
