Virginia Background Checks Laws
Criminal Record Check
Employers cannot require applicants (and agencies cannot require licensees) to disclose information about arrests or criminal charges that did not result in a conviction or that have been expunged.
Criminal history record information may be disseminated for investigations of applicants for employment if the job will involve personal contact with the public or when past criminal conduct would be incompatible with the nature of employment under consideration.
Use Of Social Media In Virginia Pre-Employment Screening
Virginia law prohibits employers from demanding employees or applicants to reveal their usernames or passwords linked to social networking sites
Virginia “At-Will” Law
At-will employees may be terminated for any reason, so long as it is not illegal. Generally, employees who work under an employment contract can only be terminated for reasons specified in the contract. However, in Virginia, the mere fact that an employment contract is in writing is not sufficient to overcome the presumption that the employment is at-will. To overcome this presumption, an employment contract must directly limit, in a meaningful and special way, the employer’s right to terminate the employee without cause. In other words, the employer has to unequivocally indicate that it will not terminate the employee except under specific circumstances.
