Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that prescribes standards for the basic minimum wage and overtime pay and affects most private and public employment.

The law, enforced by the US Department of Labor, requires employers to pay covered (Non-Exempt) employees who are not otherwise exempt at least the federal minimum wage and overtime pay at one-and-one-half-times their regular rate of pay

Additional FLSA resources can be found on the System Office HR website.
