This Act was passed in 1938.  Since then, the FLSA has been amended many times.  The major provisions of the Act are concerned with Federal minimum wage rates, overtime payments, child labor, equal pay, and record-keeping.The US Department of Labor, Wage & Hour Division, oversees Federal labor laws. Additionally, State DOLs administer state labor laws. Failure to comply with wage and hour laws may result in the employer paying the employee back wages, damages, penalties, attorney fees and court costs, plus the prospect of civil and criminal penalties from federal and/or state governments. Therefore, wage and hour compliance is of utmost importance. PRIORITY:3END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
