Fair Labor Standards Act

The Fair Labor Standards Act established minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards. It affects full-time and part-time workers in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments.

The FLSA requires that employees whose jobs are designated as nonexempt keep accurate records of time worked, be paid at least minimum wage for all hours worked, and receive an overtime premium for all hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek.  At Eastern Kentucky University, employees -- “student” and “non-student” -- whose positions are designated as “nonexempt” (not exempt from the obligations and requirements for the accurate recording of working time, right to a minimum wage and overtime pay provisions of the FLSA) are covered by the FLSA. The information that is published on this page applies to all EKU employees whose jobs are currently designated as nonexempt.

Call (859) 622-8660 or email if you have additional questions about the FLSA.
