2022 Fair Labor Standards Act: Wage and Hour Laws

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently announced with the issuance of its spring regulatory agenda that its proposed overtime rule is now tentatively slated to be released in October 2022. The proposed rule is expected to recommend how to implement the exemption of bona fide executive, professional and administrative employees that fall under the Fair Labor Standards Act's (FLSA's) overtime and minimum wage requirements. How it affects the salary level increments and duties test is yet to be finalized.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), commonly referred to as the Wage and Hour Act, was passed in 1938 and since then has been amended many times. The major provisions of the FLSA are concerned with minimum wage rates and overtime payments, child labor, and equal rights. The minimum age standards for employment and the child labor regulations have become of great importance as the year's last quarter approaches.

The US Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, oversees federal labor laws.  Additionally, State DOLs administer state labor laws. Failure to comply with Wage and Hour laws may result in the employer paying the employee back wages, damages, penalties, attorney fees and court costs, plus the prospect of civil and criminal penalties from federal and/or state governments.  Therefore, Wage and Hour compliance is of the utmost importance.
