Virginia Laws That Protect Victims of Unpaid Wages
For decades, the state of Virginia has enacted laws and protections for workers that let them receive the full amount they earn.
For example, Virginia’s recent Wage Theft Laws, such as the Virginia Wage Payment Act (VWPA) and Virginia Overtime Wage Act (VOWA), are designed to empower workers in numerous ways, such as providing them with the legal right to recover unpaid wages in court, potential awards of double and/or triple the amount of wages due, as well as protection from employer retaliation for workers who exercise their rights under these laws.
By using both Virginia laws and federal protections such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the unpaid wage lawyers at Zipin, Amster & Greenberg can help victims like you receive maximum compensation.

Attorneys Who Help Virginia Workers Receive Their Unpaid Commissions
Some Virginia workers rely heavily on commissions, such as those with sales jobs. However, employers may make the mistake of thinking they can get away with not paying their workers the full commissions they’ve earned by taking unauthorized deductions from earned commissions, refusing to pay earned commissions, misclassifying workers, or by using other perceived loopholes.
If you’re a victim of unpaid commissions, there are specific laws in Virginia that protect your right to be paid your entire commission.
