Fair Labor Standards Act

Fair Labor Standards Act

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards affecting full-time and part-time workers in the private sector and in Federal, State, and Local governments. 
 
The terms and provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) provide the basis for exempt versus non-exempt status. The exempt or non-exempt status of each employee is determined by the position to which the employee has been hired, transferred, or promoted. The Office of Human Resources is responsible for determining the correct FLSA status when the job is classified in a pay grade. Each manager must ensure that the employee performs job duties as described in the job description to ensure compliance with overtime provisions of the FLSA.
