Background and History of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
The FLSA regulates minimum wage, overtime, equal pay, recordkeeping,
and child labor. The law is published in Section 29 of the U.S. Code (Section 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)).
The FLSA is enforced by the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The FLSA applies in all states, but states are permitted to develop their own laws and regulations to provide even greater protection for their workers than is provided under federal
law. Where the two laws conflict, the law most beneficial to the employee prevails.

Wage and hour sounds simple—pay minimum wage and overtime—but it’s just not. Experts say that most employers are in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Unfortunately, attorneys have figured this out, and they see wage and hour cases as “low hanging fruit.” Once they discover even a small violation, they can usually find many more employees (sometimes hundreds) and then they can sue on behalf of the whole group. That makes these suits very expensive.
However, there are steps you can take now to best protect your organization from the most common pitfalls. Read on to familiarize yourself the rules and then build or update your policies and training for your managers and supervisors.
