Labor Law: Minimum Wage and Hour Laws

Labor laws, including wage and hour laws, are laws that govern the wages and rates an employer can pay its employees and the hours for which an employer must compensate its employees. Generally, these are referred to as minimum wage laws and overtime laws.

Wage and Hour Labor Laws

Both commercial businesses and public agencies must follow these workplace laws, including paying a fair minimum wage.

Federal Regulations

U.S. labor laws are found mainly in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA is a regulation that safeguards employers’ and workers’ rights, governs the minimum wage, and regulates overtime pay.

When do I get overtime?

The FLSA requires overtime pay of one and a half times when you work more than 40 hours a week. Some exceptions and special circumstances apply. To learn more, call us today.

How many hours can I work per week?

Unless you are under the age of 16 or a student, there is no limit to the amount of time you can work per week under American labor law.

The protections outlined under U.S. labor law still apply whether you are a part-time or full-time employee.

It is illegal to be required to work off the clock. The law requires that you be paid for the full amount of time that you work. Working from home, taking work calls from home, or working after you clock out are a couple of examples of not getting paid correctly. You are entitled to be compensated for the time.
