Seyfarth Synopsis: Hey, look what our very impressive colleagues in the Wage & Hour Group have made available. Everything you ever wanted to know (and a bunch of stuff you should, but didn’t know) about the FLSA is now available in one book. Order yours today!

The Seyfarth Shaw Wage Hour Litigation Practice Group is pleased to provide you with the inaugural edition of our FLSA Handbook. The handbook not only summarizes the substance of the federal wage and hour laws but also provides guidance for employers’ responses to investigations as well as checklists for conducting self-audits. It is intended to provide a ready resource on frequently encountered issues arising in the rapidly evolving wage and hour compliance space.

Intended as a handy desk reference for corporate counsel and human resources professionals, we have focused our attention on the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. We have also, however, highlighted significant differences and developments at the state and local levels as a reminder to readers of the importance of complying with these additional – and often more cumbersome – levels of wage and hour regulation. We hope that you find the Handbook to be useful, and invite your feedback on topics of interest to you.
