Fair Labor Standards Act

FLSA Update

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is federal employment legislation that was enacted in 1938 administered by the federal Department of Labor (DOL). It establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards/provisions affecting full-time and part-time workers in both the private and public sectors. Northern Michigan University, as a public employer, abides by all required mandates and aspects of the FLSA.  You may use this website to learn more about FLSA and exemption status.
