Fair Labor Standards Act

Overview Of The Fair Labor Standards Act

Exemption for Administrative Employees Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is the Federal law which insures that wages are paid for all hours worked and that all overtime hours, overtime pay and collected unpaid overtime due is paid to wage earners. It requires compensation at least at the current minimum wage rate for exempt and non-exempt employees. It also requires that overtime be compensated for non-exempt employees at a rate of time and one half for all hours worked over 40 in a period of seven consecutive days (workweek). 

The Virginia state minimum wage law does not contain current dollar minimums. Instead the state adopts the Federal minimum wage rate by reference.

The State law excludes from coverage any employment that is subject to the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act.

(Applicable to employers of 4 or more employees)

Future Effective Date: 07/24/2009
