Overtime: Virginia

Overtime requirements for other states

Federal law and guidance on this subject should be reviewed together with this section.

  • The Virginia Overtime Wage Act closely tracks federal law, with some exceptions. See Overtime Requirements.
  • There are separate approaches to calculating the regular rate - one for employees paid on an hourly basis, and another for employees paid on a salary or other regular basis. See The Regular Rate.
  • Virginia's regular rate requirements effectively preclude covered employers from taking advantage of the fluctuating workweek method of calculating overtime. See The Fluctuating Workweek.
