The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) includes the minimum wage and overtime laws, equal pay requirements recordkeeping, and child labor laws. Nonexempt employees are covered by the FLSA minimum wage and overtime laws. An employee who is paid on an hourly basis is usually considered to be nonexempt, regardless of the hourly rate paid.
