“Right to Work” in Virginia

April 18, 2012

A few years ago, my mission in life became clear.

To educate my fellow Virginians on what it really means that Virginia is a “right to work state.”

Most Virginians think that “Right to Work” law means, one of the following:

  • Your boss cannot prevent you legally from accepting a job elsewhere if you get fired (ie, you have a right to work in any field you chose)
  • Non-compete agreements are not really valid because after all, you have a legal right to support your family and work
  • It is against the law to even threaten an ex-employee to sue him or her if they want to work for a competitor because Virginia is a RIGHT TO WORK where you want state
