Fair Labor Standards Act

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that sets minimum wage, overtime pay, equal pay, record keeping and child labor standards for employees (who are covered by the Act) in the private sector as well as those employed in federal, state and local government. The FLSA was enacted by the United States Congress in 1938 and has been amended several times since.

Fort Hays State University, Human Resource Office has the responsibility for ensuring and maintaining compliance with the FLSA. HR assigns each position to either overtime eligible or overtime exempt status, based upon the nature of the position's duties and its level of responsibility and the testing criteria established by the Fair Labor Standards Act.
