Handling wage claims.Employees with wage payment claims exceeding $2,500 will need to contact a private law firm appointed as special counsel by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry (VDOLI), rather than the Department directly with their claims. In the past, employees were able to contact the VDOLI directly, and the Department would investigate the claims and enforce the laws. Employees may no longer bring their wage claims directly to the VDOLI. Employees with claims totaling less than $2,500 must resolve the disputes using their own means.
