A: The answer to this question will depend on why you are being singled out. While Virginia is an at-will employment state, meaning the employer or employee can terminate the employment relationship at any time, employees cannot be harassed or discriminated against due to a protected class characteristic (i.e. based on race, sex, age, religion, disability). If you believe your employer has an underlying discriminatory motive for its actions, you should reach out to a Virginia employment attorney to discuss your situation in more detail.
