Comparative Employment Law: Virginia, DC and Maryland

1h 51m

Created on April 07, 2014



Despite having the highest concentration of lawyers in the country, laws vary widely throughout the DC metro area.  Nowhere is this more evident than in the field of employment law.  Over the years, Virginia, DC, and Maryland have developed distinctive ways to address common issues surrounding the employment relationship, reflecting the red-blue spectrum of political affiliations that spans from southwest to northeast.  To help make sense of the confusion, attorney Jeffrey Rhodes identifies and explains the many differences between the employment laws of Virginia, DC, and Maryland.


This program begins by discussing the doctrine of at will employment and exceptions to the presumption in each jurisdiction. Mr. Rhodes explores the available grounds for wrongful discharge claims, and avenues for relief for employment discrimination.  Finally, Mr. Rhodes describes the different wage payment laws throughout the region, and how each jurisdiction interprets and enforces non-competition agreements.


Learning Objectives:

I.    Understand different issues and exceptions concerning employment at will

II.   Examine the types of wrongful discharge and discrimination claims that can be brought in each jurisdiction

III.  Differentiate and describe the wage payment and non-compete laws per each jurisdiction
