Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

Protecting Your Employee Rights

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a very important federal law that protects the basic rights and standards governing employment - particularly in regards to pay and overtime work - in the United States. The law was originally written in 1932 and was passed with modifications in 1938. Over the years, this landmark piece of legislation has received a number of important amendments. Among other things, the FLSA requires that every covered employee receive:

  • Minimum wage or more
  • Overtime pay of 1.5 times the regular pay for hours worked in excess of 40 hours over the course of a work week
  • Records of hours and pay kept by his or her employer

In addition, the FLSA protects underage workers by prohibiting child labor. By law, children who are under the age of 16 may not work above a certain amount of hours, while children under 18 may not participate in certain dangerous occupations, which are listed in the act. If you know of or have been the victim of an FLSA violation, it is important to talk to an experienced Rochester employment lawyer who can help you evaluate your situation and assess the options available to you.
