Employment Law - Wage And Hour Regulations

minimum standards flsa standard

The FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT (FLSA) (29 U.S.C.A. § 201 et seq.) imposes minimum-wage standards and overtime standards on most employers. The minimum hourly wage is a means of ensuring that a full-time worker can maintain a minimum standard of living. Overtime standards mandate that an employer pay employees at least time and a half for working more than eight hours per day. The FLSA does not pre-empt states or localities from setting a higher MINIMUM WAGE. An employer operating in a state or locality with a higher minimum wage than that set by the FLSA must abide by the higher standard.
