State Overtime Pay & Minimum Wage Laws
In addition to the federal overtime pay laws under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), many states have their own separate and distinct overtime and minimum age laws. In situations when both the FLSA and state law apply, the law setting the higher standards must be observed. This means that the employer is bound by the stricter of the two sets of laws when determining the overtime pays laws and minimum wage laws. Employers who violate these laws are subject to a lawsuit seeking the proper payment of overtime and wages.
