Cheski v. Arlington County Public Schools
In Cheski v. Arlington County Public Schools, 16 Va. App. 936, 434 S.E.2d 353 (1993), the Court addressed equitable estoppel in the context of the "Blue Letter."
In Cheski, the claimant received the "Blue Letter" but did not file her claim within the two-year limitation period. See 16 Va. App. at 938, 434 S.E.2d at 354.
The claimant maintained that "the employer's 'course of conduct' induced her to not timely file a claim with the commission." 16 Va. App. at 939, 434 S.E.2d at 355.
The Court analyzed the facts to determine if there was such an inducement. See 16 Va. App. at 939-40, 434 S.E.2d at 355-56.
