Almost all employers are covered by the federal labor law covering minimum wages and overtime pay for employees. The law is called the Fair Labor Standards Act (or the FLSA). Lawyers who deal with minimum wage and overtime pay issues refer to this area of law as “wage and hour” law.
This free Employee Resource Center is designed to provide employees with valuable information about the FLSA and wage and hour law and other employment rights. Our goal is to help workers learn their rights.
No resource center or website can substitute for advice from a qualified attorney. We encourage you to contact an attorney for advice about your specific legal questions. If you want to talk to a lawyer who represents workers contact us.
