The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), commonly referred to as the Wage and Hour Act, was passed in 1938 and since then has been amended many times. The major provisions of the FLSA are concerned with minimum wage rates and overtime payments, child labor, and equal rights. 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 you should attend:

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) set nationwide standards for employees of organizations engaged in interstate commerce, small businesses, and government agencies. It is still in effect today, affecting millions of full and part-time workers in the private sector as well as federal, state, and local governments.

Employers who willfully or repeatedly violate the Act may face a $10,000 fine per violation. Second offenses can result in a $10,000 fine and/or imprisonment for up to 6 months.
