Apply FLSA to today’s workplace. Learn the implications for remote work, furloughs, and other current situations.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) took effect in 1938. Most work was far different from the activities of today’s pandemic-ridden, technology-driven, distributed workplace. You need to understand how to apply the old rules to modern situations.

As people work remotely, it is challenging to classify their work and track their time. Nevertheless, employers are still obligated to pay for overtime, provide breaks, keep records, and adhere to dozens of other wage and hour requirements. Furloughs and layoffs cause even more challenges to compensate employees accurately and fairly.
