FLSA Training for Supervisors: Parts I, II & III. Introduction.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was passed in 1938. It set standards for child labor, minimum wage and overtime pay. Since the passage of the Equal Pay Act in 1963 as part of the FLSA, the Act also prohibits gender-based wage discrimination. It is essential for all supervisors, in addition to the Human Resources staff, to understand how to comply with FLSA and with state child labor and wage and hour laws. Employers need to train new and retrain current supervisors on these laws to ensure the full and correct compliance.
These sample presentations on the FLSA are structured to be given in three sessions and are organized into five parts. The first session (Parts 1-3) covers an introduction to the Act, Child Labor Regulations, and the Equal Pay Act. The second session (Part 4) covers exempt employees. The third session (Part 5) covers non-exempt employees. The sessions are intended for presentation to supervisors and other individuals who manage employees. They are designed to be presented by an individual who has comprehensive knowledge of the FLSA and the employer’s state child labor and wage and hour laws. These sample presentations must be customized to match state laws and the employer’s own policies and practices.
At the close of this session, you will be able to:
Minimum Wage and Overtime Pay
