How Does An Employer Have To Pay Employees?

Employers must establish regular paydays and rates of pay for each employee, and it is a violation of law not to pay all wages due on the established payday. Hourly employees must be paid at least once every two weeks or twice a month; and salaried employees must be paid at least once each month. These requirements do not apply to executive personnel. Virginia Code § 40.1­29(A)(1).
