Virginia is an at-will employment state. Employers are able to fire employees with or without cause in most, but not all, cases.
Many employers mistakenly believe that at will employment means they can fire an employee for any reason whatsoever. That is incorrect. There are some situations where firing an employee is a wrongful termination. If the employer fires the employee for an illegal reason, the employee has the right to sue the employer for lost wages and other damages.
