Flsa Information

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is the federal wage-and-hour law administered by the U. S. Department of Labor (DOL). When originally enacted, it created a normal work week, established a minimum wage, and prohibited oppressive child labor. The FLSA regulates employees in the private and public sectors by establishing minimum wage, overtime pay and other wage-and-hour regulations. Employees are either exempt or non-exempt from the FLSA regulations based on their position.

The college has assessed the FLSA regulations and evaluated positions college-wide to determine the proper status (exempt/non-exempt) of each one to comply with the changes. Because of more stringent FLSA requirements regarding the salary of exempt employees, Westmont must change some positions from exempt to non-exempt, making these employees eligible for overtime pay.

For questions regarding the new FLSA regulations please see the Frequently Asked Questions document below, if you still have questions we welcome you to email them to: flsahelp@westmont.edu
