"B. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the Commissioner shall, immediately upon final passage of the 2013 Appropriation Act, reconstitute the Payment of Wage Section of the Labor and Employment Law Division and as soon thereafter as practicable reinstate the investigation and resolution of any and all complaints filed as provided by Chapter 3 of Title 40.1, Code of Virginia."

(This amendment restores funding for six FTE Wage Investigator positions that were eliminated as part of budget cuts in 2012. These positions are necessary to assist workers who are not properly paid to seek restitution of earned wages.)
