Employment Law

Jake Denton represents plaintiffs and defendants in employment law matters.

Employment Law includes a broad range of matters. Wage violations, discrimination, whistleblower, defamation, and disability cases all fall under the umbrella of employment law.

Recent changes to Virginia law, including strengthening the Virginia Human Rights Act, have significantly increased remedies available to employees.

The Virginia Human Rights Act and Title VII of Federal law establish causes of actions that cover employment discrimination. These cases include sexual harassment and quid pro quo gender discrimination cases. Workplace discrimination is prohibited when based on:

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Religion
  • Disability
  • National Origin
  • Pregnancy

We represent plaintiffs and defendants in employment discrimination matters, from the initial filing of a Charge of Discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and in all aspects of litigation.

Our Firm also focuses on cases brought under the False Claims Act and the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act. These statutes award significant recoveries to individuals that successfully bring whistleblower cases to recover for fraud against the federal or Virginia State Government.

We also handle cases involving unpaid wages; violation of overtime laws; and the Fair Labor Standards Act.
