Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

Fair Labor Standards Act
Protecting Workers' Rights and Ensuring Fair Compensation
On June 25, 1938, President Roosevelt signed the Fair Labor Standards Act (popularly known as the Wages and Hours Bill). The law established a minimum wage, a standardized work week, and made it a requirement for employers to pay extra for overtime work. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, and record keeping requirements affecting employees in the private sector and in federal, state, and local governments. Employers who fail to abide by federal and state employment laws may be subject to civil money penalties and can be sued individually or collectively by many, depending on how many employees are impacted. If you’re a worker who’s been denied overtime pay, underpaid, or been the victim of another type of wage theft, you may be able to file an FLSA claim against your employer to recover your wages and seek additional compensation with the help of an experienced wage and hour attorney.
