According to the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry, a Claim for Wages form should be submitted for an employee to report alleged wage theft.
If you are claiming wages based on an hourly wage, include the dates, hours, and location(s) where the work was performed for which you were not paid. Be sure to include the total amount of wages you are claiming. Please provide documentation of employment and your established rate of pay, such as a paycheck stub; otherwise, the state’s enforcement may be limited.
If you are claiming wages based on a salary rate, include the maximum number of hours and days you were required to or normally worked to receive the salary. Please provide documentation, such as a paycheck stub to verify that the salary or the deductions from salary you are claiming is accurate. Provide dates and hours worked for which you were not paid and include the total amount of wages you are claiming.
If you are claiming wages based on commission, state the total amount of commissions you claim are due and indicate how you arrived at the dollar amount of your claim. Please provide a copy of your commission agreement with your employer. Indicate what you had to do to earn the commission and under what circumstances the commission would become due and payable if no written commission document exists. Account for any and all "draws" you may have received. Identify each specific account for which you seek payment of a commission and state the dollar amount of the commission you claim for each account. Provide documentation such as a paycheck stub or commission report to verify employment and the commission rate you are claiming is accurate.
