Overview:  Virginia has enacted a law that amends the information that must be provided by employers to employees on their wage statements provided at the time of pay. 

Effective Date: January 1, 2020

Details:

On April 3, 2019, Virginia enacted Senate Bill 1696 which amends the information that must be provided by employers to employees on their wage statements provided at the time of pay.  Effective, January 1, 2020, the information required to be provided is as follows:

On each regular pay date, each employer other than an employer engaged in agricultural employment including agribusiness and forestry shall provide to each employee a written statement by a paystub or online accounting that shows:

1.         The name and address of the employer.

2.         The number of hours worked during the pay period.

3.         The rate of pay. 

4.         The gross wages earned by the employee during the pay period.

5.         The amount and purpose of any deductions therefrom. 

 

When requested by an employee, an employer engaged in agricultural employment including agribusiness and forestry must furnish the employee a written statement of the gross wages earned by the employee during any pay period and the amount and purpose of any deductions therefrom.

Currently, Virginia requires that wage statements must be provided upon request by an employee that includes the following information: (1) gross wages earned by the employee during any pay period and the (2) amount and purpose of any deductions therefrom.
