6 Tips To Help Your Company Avoid Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Violation

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was originally established in 1938 and has since seen numerous updates and amendments. This federal statute governs numerous aspects of employment law, such as things like minimum wage, overtime, child labor laws, and much more.

The FLSA is a complex piece of legislation, and it can be incredibly easy for a business to violate certain aspects of the law. Particularly in the Digital Age, with companies utilizing more independent contractors, telecommuting, and employee travel, there can be a great deal of ambiguity surrounding employer obligations with regard to the FLSA. What hours are compensable? Do hours worked from home qualify for overtime? Who is exempt from FLSA standards? These are not easy or clearcut questions for most employers, and violations of this major employment law can result in costly and damaging lawsuits.

There are many ways, however, in which you can be proactive and help ensure your company maintains FLSA compliance. Below we have detailed six tips to help your business take action to avoid FLSA violations. Please keep in mind, these tips are not intended as legal advice for your specific situation. You should always consult with a skilled business attorney who can analyze your company’s circumstances and needs with regard to FLSA compliance. Contact The Campbell Law Group today to learn more.
