The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) affects more than 90 million American workers. This federal law regulates a number of areas of wage and hour law, including minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards requirements for both employers and employees. Are you certain that you are correctly classifying your employees and interpreting all of aspects of the law correctly?
With all of the rules and regulations involved, specifically with exempt and nonexempt employee classifications, the FLSA is one of HR's trickiest fields to navigate. Many organizations struggle with employee classification standards, and are even further confused by what criteria are used to determine the appropriate classification. Is the employee salaried or hourly? What are the employee's job duties and job title? Are other specifics involved? Make even one mistake administering FLSA, and you could be putting your company at risk.
