Federal Wage Laws
The federal law that regulates employees’ wages is called the Fair
Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA establishes minimum wage, overtime
pay, and recordkeeping requirements for employees. Covered nonexempt employees
are entitled to a minimum wage and overtime pay at a rate of not less
than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay for more than 40 hours
of work in a workweek. Call
Shane McClelland for assistance in your employment wage and hour matters.
There are exceptions when an employee is not entitled to minimum wage or
overtime pay. For example, employees who are bona fide executives, administrators,
or professional and some outside sales employees are exempt from the FLSA’s
minimum wage and overtime requirements. To be exempt, employees must have
certain job duties and be paid on a salary basis at not less than $455
per week. It is important to keep in mind that job titles don’t
determine whether an employee is exempt or not.
