The Virginia Human Rights Act prohibits employment practices that discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, disability, age (40 years or over), and marital status, but does not specifically address the issue of application forms (VA Code Sec. 2.2-3900 et seq.). The Act covers all employers.
Disability. The Virginians with Disabilities Act also prohibits employment practices that discriminate against qualified individuals with a disability (VA Code Sec. 51.5-1). The law covers all employers, regardless of size (Yates v. Volunteer Health Care Sys., 783 F. Supp. 1002 (W.D. Va. 1992)).
