WHAT IS THE FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT (FLSA)?

what-is-the-fair-labor-standards-act-flsa

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which is also known as the federal Wage and Hour Law, regulates minimum wage, overtime, equal pay, record-keeping, and child labor for employees of enterprises engaged in interstate or foreign commerce and employees of state and local governments.

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 have their own laws and regulations to provide even greater protection for their workers than is provided under federal law — which is typically the case in California.

In cases in which the two laws conflict, the law most beneficial to the employee takes precedence. Therefore, it is essential that employers understand both the state and federal laws.
