The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938
The FLSA was enacted in 1938 to ensure that employees are paid fairly and their rights are protected. Below we’ll discuss some of the provisions of the FLSA.
FLSA Minimum Wage
The FLSA requires that employers pay their employees at least the federal minimum wage. As of July 24, 2009 the federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour for non-exempt employees and applies to all states. It’s important to note that as of September 2022, the state minimum wage is $11 per hour and employees in Florida are entitled to this higher state minimum wage rate.
The FLSA requires that employers pay their employees time and a half for any hours worked over 40 in a work week. Employers must also provide all non-exempt employees with meal breaks, rest periods, and other legally mandated time off.
The FLSA also requires employers to keep accurate records of employee wages and hours worked. This includes tracking all time for hourly employees, meal and rest breaks, sick leave, vacation time, holidays, and more.
FLSA Child Labor Laws
The FLSA also regulates the employment of minors and sets limits for hours worked, tasks that can be performed, and the types of jobs they can do. The laws are designed to protect children from exploitation in the workplace.
