Sensible Advice To Keep Your Business Safe
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is an important federal law that outlines how workers get paid and what they get paid. Employers need to make sure their compensation policies follow the law, or they could face expensive litigation. The law firm of Bradley Devitt Haas & Watkins, P.C., deeply understands how FLSA affects businesses and how Colorado businesses operate. We can help you make sure your practices comply with the law, and we can defend you against compensation-related litigation.
What Does FLSA Cover?
Among the things that FLSA regulates that could affect your business, there are:
- Wage standards, including the federal minimum hourly wage for nonexempt workers
- Overtime pay
- Child labor
- Record keeping of employee wages and hours
These regulations are often quite intricate, and there are several exemptions that may apply to your workers. Trying to keep track of all your obligations and rights under FLSA on your own can easily lead to a costly mistake. Our lawyers will keep you informed about FLSA and help you minimize the risk of an employee lawsuit.
