The FLSA – A User’s Manual takes the confusion out of the nation’s wage and hour law and explains it in straightforward everyday language. This book explains when overtime must be paid under the FLSA, how employers are liable for time they “suffer or permit” their employees to work, what sort of time counts as “hours worked” for overtime purposes and many other issues.
This edition of The FLSA – A User’s Manual includes numerous substantial updates, including:
- What counts as work time under the FLSA, including travel time, work activities outside of normal hours, donning and doffing, and training.
- Revisions of sections explaining how to calculate the regular rate of pay, which is used to compute the overtime rate.
- How the Department of Labor’s new regulations on exempt employees are being applied to mid-level supervisors.
- The standards for accrual and use of compensatory time off under the FLSA.
- And much more!
The FLSA – A User’s Manual comes with a CD ROM that contains the full searchable text of the book with links to hundreds of court cases, links to online FLSA resources and hundreds of opinion letters from the Department of Labor dealing with the FLSA.
