The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is important to everyone who holds a job. This law governs what an employer can and cannot do when it comes to your time at work, and how you are compensated. Beasley Allen Report host Gibson Vance welcomes Beasley Allen attorney Lance Gould to examine the aspects of FLSA and how it affects everyone in the workplace. Gould explains the FLSA was originally enacted in the late 1930s, by President Roosevelt. It guaranteed a federal minimum wage, and that employees who worked more than 40 hours per week would receive overtime. Its goal was to eliminate oppressively long hours, forcing employers to spread out the labor among more people, and fairly compensate those who had to work longer hours. Today, cases involving FLSA may include employees being misclassified as managers rather than hourly workers, to avoid paying overtime. Other cases may involve employees being asked to perform certain job duties before clocking in or after clocking out.
