Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)


The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was created to establish a minimum wage and a limit on the number of hours worked in a standard workweek. It also provides standards for equal pay, overtime pay, record keeping, and child labor.


Within the Fair Labor Standards Act are specific requirements for determining whether a job is exempt from the overtime and minimum wage provisions of the Act. Human Resources is responsible for determining whether a position is exempt or nonexempt by interpreting and applying the provisions of the Act.

Minimum Wage

In the spirit of the Fair Labor Standards Act, and under the terms of ABC policy, ABC will pay at least the minimum wage to all employees.


Employees do not receive compensation for hours worked over the number of hours in a standard workweek as defined by the FLSA.

Time Card

In the spirit of the FLSA, employees are required to submit their time worked on approved ABC timecards. The timecard is the official record and must accurately record the number of hours an employee works or is paid for each week. Hours not worked must also be recorded.


Supervisors sign the timecards and must have personal knowledge of the hours worked by, or paid to the employee.  Any fraudulent recording of hours worked or paid is a violation of this policy and illegal under the FLSA.  Violators will be subject to disciplinary/legal action (up to and including discharge).
