Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Resources
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, record keeping and child labor standards affecting full-time and part-time workers in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments. Covered nonexempt workers are entitled to a minimum wage and overtime pay at a rate of not less than one and one-half times their regular rates of pay after 40 hours of physical work in a workweek. (As a public sector employer, the University may use equivalent compensatory time off instead of the direct dollars.) The FLSA also provides that an employee may be ‘exempt’ from the overtime provisions if certain requirements are met. The U.S. Department of Labor administers the FLSA.
