What aspects of employment does the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) dictate?
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the federal standards that all employers in the United States must meet in regards to the employment of any individual. Among the most commonly cited standards the FLSA sets are the federal minimum wage, overtime wages, and child labor laws. While every company in the United States must adhere to these laws, state, county, and city law may additionally dictate minimum wages, overtime, and work conditions. The employment lawyers at The Melton Law Firm are committed to protecting the rights of workers like you against employers who violate these regulations.
