FLSA Overtime Law Uncertainty

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was introduced in 1938 with the objective to improve labor conditions, protect underage employees, provide a minimum wage, and allow for overtime pay. Several amendments to the FLSA occurred over the years, with a significant change in 1963 with the Equal Pay Act. This amendment required employers to pay men and women the same wage for jobs that required equal skill, effort, and responsibility and were performed under similar working conditions. Legitimate pay practices like seniority, merit-based programs, or systems that tied earnings to quantity or quality still allowed for unequal pay. Over the next 41 years, the FLSA was amended to increase minimum wages (multiple amendments), provide protections for specific types of workers (e.g., migrant and seasonal workers, etc.), and other relatively small changes.
