What is the Fair Labor Standards Act?

The Fair Labor Standards Act, or FLSA, is a federal law established to ensure minimum wage and labor requirements. The FLSA was enacted in order to create fair standards surrounding minimum wage, overtime pay, record-keeping and child labor. The FLSA helps protect the rights of employees in the U.S. working in the private sector, or for federal, state, and local governments, regardless of whether you are a full- or part-time employee. This federal regulation covers almost 90% of employees in the workforce.
