As we’ve been trying to advise you over the past several weeks, it is not only minimum wages that change when the New Year kicks in. On Wednesday of this week, January 1, Virginia employers became subject to a new state law that requires them to provide paystubs to employees on “each regular pay date.” Under the old law, employers only needed to provide a written statement reflecting the employee’s gross wages and deductions upon the employee’s request. Now, they must provide employees with a written statement – by paystub or online – that includes the following information: the name and address of the employer, the number of hours worked during the pay period, the employee’s rate of pay, the gross wages earned by the employee during the pay period and the amount and purpose of any deductions. The new law applies to all employers and mandates the information for exempt as well as non-exempt employees.
