Fair Labor Standards Act Reviews


The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping and child labor standards affecting full-time and part-time workers in the private sector and in federal, state and local governments.

Conducting an FLSA review and properly documenting exemption decisions provides a safe harbor for organizations.

Issues to Be Considered:

  • Are your employees properly classified under the FLSA rules and regulations?
  • Will employees be owed overtime for previous work if their status changes from exempt to non exempt?
  • Are job descriptions currently reflecting the actual duties, responsibilities and educational requirements of the position?


  • Ensure job descriptions are thorough and up to date, capturing all relevant information; Compensation Resources can write or update job descriptions as necessary.
  • Conduct an in-depth review of positions to determine if they are exempt or non exempt.
  • Review current classifications and identify any misclassifications.
  • Prepare drafts of communication materials to managers and/or employees regarding any changes to be made to their exemption status as a result of the review.
