The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), commonly referred to as the Wage and Hour Act, is considered to be an employee protection act.This Act was passed in 1938.Since then, the FLSA has been amended many times.The major provisions of the Act are concerned with Federal minimum wage rates, overtime payments, child labor, equal pay, and recordkeeping.
The US Department of Labor, Wage & Hour Division, oversees federal labor laws.Additionally, State DOLs administer state labor laws.Failure to comply with Wage & Hour laws may result in the employer paying the employee back wages, damages, penalties, attorney fees and court costs, plus the prospect of civil and criminal penalties from federal and/or state governments.Therefore, Wage & Hour compliance is of the utmost importance.
Why should you attend
Civil lawsuits for Wage and Hour violations are always a threat to businesses.Violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) can result in astronomical financial judgements against employers, lawsuits, criminal charges, and/or being debarred from being awarded Federal contracts for a period of three years.By understanding the provisions of the FLSA, you can protect your company from major financial consequences.
