The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was designed to protect four areas of employment practices: overtime wages, recordkeeping and minimum wage. This federal law requires employers to pay employees a minimum-working wage, and also time and a half for all hours worked over 40 per week. While there are some exceptions to the overtime standards for professionals and other specified types of workers, this statute largely governs fair working standards.
