1. As currently enacted, the Virginia Human Rights Act (VHRA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, age, marital status, and disability. But the VHRA does not allow most employees to sue their employers directly to vindicate these rights. Instead, the statute provides for a private right of action only against employers that have between five and 15 employees, leaving other employees to pursue enforcement under federal law. Given the size of most employers in the commonwealth, the employer-size limitations frequently render the VHRA inconsequential in terms of private litigation.

1. The Equal Pay Act is a statute that prevents a pay differential based on sex. Unlike other Virginia gender discrimination laws, it is a statute that is federal in its scope. It applies to both men and women, although women are usually the ones who are paid less based on gender. The practice of paying a woman less simply because they are a woman is illegal under the Fair Labor Standards Act and is enforced by the EEOC. Unlike other laws that are enforced by the EEOC, someone does not have to file a charge with the EEOC first to bring the case to court. It is an option under the EPA but is not required. Someone suing under the EPA must show they were paid less because they are a man or a woman. However, an employer may say there are other reasons that explain the pay differential such as the person’s educational or experience level.
