No. The July 1, 2020 statues relate to the use of the Virginia court system for employees who think they are misclassified as independent contractors. It appears that s hiring company found to have wrongly classified an individual that way would be responsible for back taxes and benefits back to that effective date. The next batch of statutes that take effect on January 1, 2021 also do not apply retroactively to before that date. Those statutes allow the Virginia Department of Taxation to fine companies for misclassification beginning that date.
