The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), commonly referred to as the Wage and Hour Act, was passed in 1938 and since then has been amended many times. It is considered an Employee Protection Act whereby employees are generally presumed non-exempt and entitled to overtime pay. However, there are exemptions from this Act for executive, administrative, professional, outside sales, and computer-related employees. The major provisions of the FLSA are concerned with minimum wage rates and overtime payments, child labor, and equal pay.
