The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA): Is Your Client at Risk for Unpaid Overtime Claims? 

The Fair Labor Standards Act 1938 (abbreviated as FLSA; also referred to as the Wages and Hours Bill) is a federal statute of the United States. The FLSA introduced a maximum 44-hour seven-day workweek, established a national minimum wage, guaranteed ‘time-and-a-half‘ for overtime in certain jobs, and prohibited most employment of minors in “oppressive child labor,” a term that is defined in the statute. This CLE program is a 30-Minute CLE program that explores the FLSA which prescribes standards for the basic minimum wage and overtime pay, affects most private and public employment. It requires employers to pay covered employees who are not otherwise exempt at least the federal minimum wage and overtime pay of one-and-one-half-times the regular rate of pay. This program will provide attorneys with a  brief introduction to the overall Act, but will pay particular attention to Employer liability for Unpaid Overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Risks associated with misclassification of employees and unpaid internships will be explored in the context of recent litigation in these areas. A good primer on the FLSA for general litigators, budding labor lawyers and lawyers representing general business clients in these contentious times.
