APPLICABLE FEDERAL WAGE AND
While there are hundreds of laws applicable to labor, some of the most commonly applicable wage and compensation include:
- The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
The FLSA establishes the guidelines for wages and overtime pay for both private and public employment. Employers are required to pay federal minimum wage as the most basic level of compensation. Overtime amounting to one and a half times normal pay is also applicable in situations when employees work in excess of 40 hours in a week.
- Immigration and Nationality Act
The Immigration and Nationality Act applies to legal aliens holding non-immigrant visas who are authorized to work in the U.S., and establishes the legal parameters around such employment.
- Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
ERISA, for employers who offer employee welfare benefit plans, regulates the benefits plans management to ensure all beneficiaries are covered.
- Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
While employers are entitled to perform background checks on prospective employees, there are requirements that the process is performed fairly, and extra requirements imposed when checks are done through third-parties.
Other than federal laws, Arizona also has state specific wage laws, which address various scenarios, including sick leave, leave for jury duty, and severance pay. An employment attorney at Enara Law can help guide you through the federal and state law requirements surround payment of wages and compensation.
