Wage and Hour Laws

The Fair Labor Standards Act, enacted by Congress in 1938 and amended numerous times since then, requires most employers in the United States to comply with minimum wage and hour standards. The law’s basic requirements govern the payment of a minimum wage, payment of overtime pay for employees working more than 40 hours per work week, employment limitations for children, and mandated record keeping by employers.
