Am I entitled to overtime pay in Virginia?

Keep in mind that in the state of Virginia, wage and hour laws are controlled by the Fair Labor Standards Act and Virginia state law. The Fair Labor Standards Act and Virginia state law outline which workers are qualified to receive overtime pay. Some non-exempt employees who work more than 40 hours per week should be permitted to receive overtime pay. Overtime pay must be at least 1.5 times the amount of the worker’s regular pay. With that being said, it is important to note that there are exemptions from overtime pay for specific categories of employees set out by the FSLA, which are administrative, professional, and executive, among others.

If you have additional questions or concerns regarding the qualifications for receiving overtime payments in Virginia, reach out to our firm today to discuss the details of your case and your options.
