Changes Coming on June 29 to Virginia's COVID Workplace Safety Rules

We'll be doing the hard work and posting what you need to know in our client alerts.

    Overtime Wage Act. Virginia DOLI appears to be shifting its attention from COVID to overtime. They just posted some new FAQs on the subject that, I think, are really helpful. Short and sweet. Check them out here. I know this act is going to be a big tool for plaintiff's counsel in the coming years, so time to bone up.

What do they want? What cases are they using to build their case? You can now get serious extra credit by reading this compendium, released today, where EEOC tells you the cases they are using to train their folks.
