Wage and Hour Guide Available
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Legal Foundation has published The Wage and Hour Handbook for Small Business, which gives employers a nuts and bolts look at the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the federal wage and hour law.
The FLSA sets the federal rules for minimum wage, overtime pay, record-keeping and child labor requirements for full-time and part-time employees. The new handbook takes each major section of the FLSA and explains it in a practical way to help guide business decisions.
Some topics covered by the Wage and Hour Handbook:
- What is the FLSA’s impact on employers?
- Who qualifies as an “exempt” employee?
- Child Labor
- Notice Posting
Business clients who are NFIB members can download the handbook free from www.nfib.com/legal, under the heading NFIB’s Legal Compliance Guides. Non-members can access the PDF for a $10 fee by contacting 800-634-2669.
The NFIB partnered with the law firm of Arent Fox, with offices in New York City and Washington, D.C., to produce the book.
