Wage and Hour refers to laws and regulations governing employee classifications and pay practices. The Fair Labor Standards Act is the federal law that governs this area. There are also regulations found the in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) that govern wage and hour matters. The US Department of Labor - Wage and Hour Division is the federal administrative agency charged with enforcing the FLSA and the applicable CFR’s. In addition, states have labor laws in place that govern wage and hour practices along with administrative bodies that create regulations and enforce the state laws.
