What is the Fair Labor Standards Act? What can happen to an employer who does not enforce or abide by this Act?
Answer: The federal law standards act is basically a law that requires minimum wage. It requires employers to pay overtime; it requires employers to keep records with regards to time and pay records for the employees, and also to provide a poster of the Fair Labor Standards Act. It also used employment standards with regards to limiting their time that they can work, in an effort to protect the education opportunities for minors. Basically, they’re subject to civil fines and potentially criminal penalties if they violate certain provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. So the penalties and fines will be listed in the Fair Labor Standards Act itself.
