The following is an overview of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Refer to other sections in this site for more detailed information.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that sets minimum wage, overtime pay, equal pay, record keeping and child labor standards for employees (who are covered by the Act) in the private sector as well as those employed in federal, state and local government. The FLSA was enacted by the United States Congress in 1938 and has been amended several times since.
The State of Kansas has delegated responsibility to each agency for ensuring and maintaining compliance with the FLSA. Human Resource Services (HRS) monitors compliance with the FLSA for Pittsburg State University. HRS will review individual positions to determine whether a position is exempt from the FLSA. Positions that are not exempt are deemed "non-exempt" and are subject to FLSA.
