The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards affecting full-time and part-time workers in the private sector and in federal, state, and local governments. This includes Pasadena.
The FLSA covers most private and public sector employees, with a few exceptions.
The FLSA establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards affecting full-time and part-time workers.
The federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour as of July 24, 2009. However, some states have adopted a higher minimum wage.
Overtime pay under the FLSA is generally at a rate of one and one-half times an employee's regular rate of pay after 40 hours of work in a workweek. If you are not being paid fairly call a Pasadena wage and hour attorney.
The FLSA also requires that covered, nonexempt workers be paid for any work week in which they perform any work, regardless of the number of hours actually worked.
The FLSA provides many exemptions from both the minimum wage and overtime pay requirements.
The law also requires that covered employees be paid at least the federal minimum wage for all hours worked, plus time and one-half their regular rates of pay, for hours worked over 40 in a workweek.
The FLSA does not require payment for overtime hours worked on weekends or holidays.
