Legal Question in Discrimination Law in Virginia

termination process

I have a brother who worked for a local town police dept. He apparently had used internet inapproperately and was told he could either resign or get fired. He not know for sure resigned. We since then have found out that he cannot get unemployment benefits . He also is finding out there was no policy to the use of the internet on file . there are to many things to put in the email we may need to talk to you further. we are now running into the former employer slandering him so he cannot get employment.

Re: termination process

You should consult an attorney with experience in employment law and also ask about how to stop the slander.

Re: termination process

Your brother, unfortunately, is probably without a remedy, unless he can somehow make out a viable case for defamation against this former employer which is always quite difficult in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
