Virginia Employment Lawyer

Virginia Employment Lawyer

Employment law includes statutes, constitutions, regulations, precedents, and other law that control how employers should treat employees, former employees, and applicants for employment. Employment law also encompasses contracts such as non-competes, severance agreements, and employment agreements.

John Davidson, our employment lawyer at Davidson & Kitzmann, is proud to represent individuals in a full range of employment disputes. All are welcome.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment can cause severe stress and destroy one’s ability to work and thrive in the workplace. We are committed to providing the highest quality client service and legal representation in a sensitive and caring manner.


Employment discrimination involves the different treatment of employees based on age, race, sex, pregnancy, religion, and other protected classes. We are dedicated to helping victims of discrimination protect their rights.

Family and Medical Leave Act

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law protecting employee rights to medical leave for the employee’s medical condition or an immediate family member’s medical condition, as well as the birth or adoption of a child, among others. The Family and Medical Leave Act protects the right to return from leave to the same position you had before leave or a position similar to your prior position.

Unpaid Compensation

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and certain state laws require companies to pay many employees overtime wages for any time worked in excess of 40 hours in a week. Unfortunately, many employers routinely violate the law, such as by “misclassifying” an employee as exempt, by forcing employees to work “off the clock”, or by docking an employee’s pay unfairly. There are other examples of unpaid compensation, such as breach of contract, unpaid commissions, minimum wage violations, and others. We have 27 years of experience handling these matters.


If you are presented with an employment contract, severance agreement, non-compete agreement, non-solicitation, or confidentiality agreement, you should consult with an attorney BEFORE you sign.  If you have already signed a contract and now have a problem related to it, you also should reach out to an employment lawyer for advice. There may be ways to deal with your contract issue. Also, if you need help negotiating any kind of employment-related contract, you should get that help from an experienced employment lawyer.

Healthcare Professionals

In the complex health care environment, physicians and other healthcare professionals are faced with numerous legal issues. Some of those are employment issues. For example, a Board of Medicine complaint often comes with worries about one’s employment. Compensation and non-compete concerns are common in medicine. With over 27 years of experience representing physicians and other healthcare professionals, we have developed skill in effectively navigating through the legal issues often faced by medical professionals.
