Understanding The Fair Labor Standards Act

Are you in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act? Basically every business is subject to these laws and they are perhaps the most far reaching of any labor laws. Did you know you must pay your coworkers for all work – even if you did not authorize or approve it? Learn how you can pay your employees for “billable time” and avoid paying unnecessary overtime. How much time off are your employees entitled to? What records do you need to keep and for how long? Do I need to include bonuses when calculating overtime? You will learn the answers to all of these questions and many more. This book teaches you the things you need to know about the FLSA. Includes specific information by state.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a law that applies to virtually all businesses in America. It is also the single law most often violated by employers. The FLSA regulates minimum wage, overtime, recordkeeping, child labor law and a variety of other federal labor and employment law sections. Although the original law is considered by some to be extremely thorough and comprehensive, we have made it easy for you with this condensed overview that focuses on the general requirements of the FLSA. This product is a valuable tool for managers. This book compliments the FMLA and would make a great addition to your Human Resource Department.
