I am currently working for a company that purchased a small staffing firm I worked for a few years ago and I am now working for them by default. The company is based out of India and is in financial despair with a lot of Levys and liens that are going to ultimately put us out of business. I have started my own corporation and plan on taking all of the customers to the new company in the next two months. What can I expect to be up against once they catch on?

A family member of mine was terminated because a fellow employee

A family member of mine was terminated because a fellow employee told a supervisor they smelled alcohol on his breath. My family member disputed the hearsay and requested an alcohol test on the spot that moment to prove his innocence. The supervisor said he didn't have the authority to send him for a test, but sent him home. Then the supervisor called him at home and said he was advised by mgmt. that he was terminated. My relative has had a good working record with this company and cannot understand why he was denied the right to a test that would have proven innocence over hearsay from someone who had personal resentments for him. Is this legal in Virginia and what are his legal rights in Virginia?
