The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended, also known as FLSA is the federal law establishing minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards. These standards impact more than 100 million workers in both the public and private sectors. The FLSA is intended to set basic wage and hour standards to protect the best interest of the American workforce. Written by Jared Koesten of the KOHR Group Human Capital Consulting, this tutorial will instruct you about the four areas FLSA oversees; exemptions; the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007; overtime pay; recordkeeping; Youth Employment; employment practices; FLSA administration and Enforcement; what employers must do for Compliance; and Penalties.
