  • Labor law for private sector employers in Virginia consists primarily of the Right to Work statute, which lists conduct that is considered unlawful by employers and the penalties for violating the statute. See Right to Work.
  • Public employers do not have a duty to bargain with public employees. However, there are still some prohibited practices for which there are penalties. See Public Employers.
