New FLSA Compliance Tool Launched

February 7, 2019

The Department of Labor (DOL) has released an updated electronic version of its Handy Guide to the FLSA. Along with providing an online guide for workers and employers, the compliance tool provides links to additional resources, such as overtime pay computing tables and FLSA factsheets.

The Handy Guide, designed by DOL’s Wage and Hour Division, uses plain language information, videos, and factsheets to explain and clarify the nuisances of the FLSA. In addition, it contains links to tools employers often need.

As part of the attempt to modernize departments within the DOL, the guide ties in the Small Business Administration and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission websites. The guide is optimized with easy of use for tablets and other mobile devices. 

“This is a great resource for ILMA members to understand their responsibilities and while protecting workers,” said ILMA CEO Holly Alfano.
