The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938 is published in 29 C.F.R. 201 et. seq.
The Fair Labor Standards Act:
- provides minimum standards for both wages and overtime entitlement
- specifies administrative procedures by which covered worktime must be compensated
- includes provisions related to child labor, equal pay, and travel time issues
- exempts specified employees or groups of employees from the application of certain of its provisions
The Fair Labor Standards Act also:
- requires employers to pay workers a minimum wage and overtime when the employee works more than 40 hours in a week
- provides exceptions to this rule for professional, executive and
administrative employees (employees found to be exempt under these
provisions are not required to be paid additional wages for overtime)
Policy and Compliance staff are responsible for making FLSA
determinations for individual positions within state agencies. Training
and certification for making FLSA determinations is available for human
resources staff of agencies with delegated classification authority.
Please contact the Human Resource Consultant assigned to work with
your agency with any inquiries regarding the process for requesting
changes to the exempt/non-exempt status of specific positions or to find
about the availability of FLSA certification training.
