The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, record keeping, and youth employment standards. Non-exempt workers are entitled to minimum wage. In cases where an employee is subject to both state and federal minimum wage laws, the employee is entitled to the higher minimum wage.

FLSA Overtime: Covered non-exempt employees must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 per work week at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay. There is no limit on the number of hours an employee of 16 years of age or older may work in any work week. The FLSA does not require overtime pay for work on weekends, holidays, or regular days of rest, unless overtime is worked on such days.

Record keeping: Employers must display an official poster outlining the requirements of the FLSA. Employers must also keep employee time and pay records.

Youth Employment: These provisions are designed to protect the educational opportunities of minors and prohibit their employment in jobs and under conditions detrimental to their health or well-being.
