The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or the Wage and Hour Act has been updated many times over the years to include some important features. It serves as an Employee Protection Act to help employees, generally presumed non-exempt and entitled to overtime pay. It explains the exemptions for professional, administrative, executive, outside sales, and computer-related employees.
Since 1938, the US Department of Labor (DOL) Wage & Hour Division has been overseeing federal labor laws. The non-compliance with Wage & Hour laws causes the employer to pay the employee back wages, damages, penalties, attorney fees, and court costs, and the aspect of civil and criminal penalties from federal and/or state governments. Now you need to recognize the growing importance of Wage & hour compliance.
Civil lawsuits for Wage and Hour violations are always a big threat to business. Violations of the FLSA can result in astronomical financial judgments against employers. Thus, the FLSA provisions protect your company from a major financial loss. Learn what these provisions support for minimum wage rates, overtime payments, child labor, and equal pay.

We will bring forward the regulatory standards for employees to be compensated for training, meal breaks, travel time, and on-call status.
