Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Wage Claims We Stand With Silence Breakers

Fair Labor Standards Act Wage Claims

Schwartz Perry & Heller LLP Explains the FLSA

The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA) establishes federal standards for workers regarding minimum wage, overtime pay, record keeping, and child labor. Covered employees are entitled to minimum wage not less than $8.50 per hour, and overtime pay at a rate of not less than 1 and ½ times the regular rate of pay for all hours worked after 40 hours in a workweek. Under most circumstances, an employee must be at least 16 years of age to work.

Most states, including New York and New Jersey, have minimum wage rates that track the federal rate. Where federal and state laws have different minimum standard wages, the higher standard applies.
