Virginia Raises Minimum Wage

by | Apr 30, 2021 | Wage & Hour Laws

Beginning on May 1, 2021, Virginia’s minimum wage rate will rise to $9.50 an hour. The current minimum wage rate in Virginia is $7.25 an hour.  Under a law passed last year by the Virginia General Assembly, the minimum wage will gradually increase to $12 an hour by January 1, 2023.  Virginia employers must act immediately to comply with the new wage law.  All employees are entitled to earn at least the minimum wage rate.

Please contact our firm immediately if your employer has failed to pay you at an hourly rate equal to or greater than the minimum wage.
