Virginia Labor Laws
Virginia labor laws per se, but they are far from unprotected. Eligible or non-exempt workers are protected by the Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA) laws which protect every U. S. worker. That begs the question, of course, just who is non-exempt and who is exempt under the FLSA overtime laws. Often misunderstood, and misclassified, employees can lose valuable overtime pay when misclassified or untutored in the differences between exempt and non-exempt workers. Virginia labor laws accept by default the FLSA FairPay Overtime Rules which include the following provisions:Virginia employees may not be protected from overtime violations by
- Employees who earn less than $23,660* per year (or $455* weekly) are guaranteed overtime protection.
- All employees who do not meet ALL the exemption tests are also guaranteed overtime pay.
- All employees whose days are structured by the employer must also be paid overtime.
