Information

WHY ATTEND?

  • Examine groundbreaking new tools that Virginia workers who allege wage theft have to vindicate their rights, as a result of a raft of new laws passed in the last two sessions of the General Assembly
  • Hear a summary of the new wage payment, overtime, paycheck transparency, and misclassification laws, including damages, statute of limitations, administrative exhaustion and collective action provisions

COURSE PURPOSE

This panel will educate Virginia practitioners about the groundbreaking new wage and hour laws recently signed into law. Prior to the enactment of these laws, Virginia workers who alleged they were paid incorrectly had few rights in state law. The panelists will examine the new statutes and provide practice pointers for practitioners.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Virginia’s Wage Payment Statute, Va. Code § 40.1-29
  • The Virginia Overtime Wage Act, Va. Code § 40.1-29.2
  • Virginia’s new worker misclassification laws, Va. Code § 40.1-28.7:7; Va. Code §§ 58.1-1900-05; and Va. Code § 40.1-33.1
  • Virginia’s new pay transparency law, Va. Code § 40.1-28.7:9
  • Wage-and-hour practice pointers, including collective action motions
