Chapter Summary


ABSTRACT TEXT:

This chapter from Wages & Hours: Law and Practice provides an overview of the treatise.

The chapter first generally discusses how federal wage-hour laws have molded the character of our nation's economy since the Depression era. It then examines the topics to be covered in each chapter of the treatise, including the fundamental concepts of wage-hour regulation; the Fair Labor Standards Act's miscellaneous requirements; the Equal Pay Act of 1963; the primary wage-hour laws applicable to work performed pursuant to federal contracts or federally assisted projects; an analysis of each state's wage-hour statutes and wage orders, as well as the statutes and wage orders of the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico; and the evaluation and investigation of a wage-hour claim.

The chapter then examines highlights of relevant federal wage-hour statutes, including the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, the Walsh-Healey Act, the Service Contract Act of 1965, the Davis-Bacon and Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Acts, and the Copeland "Anti-Kickback" Act.

Wages & Hours: Law and Practice (Matthew Bender) covers all aspects of federal and state laws governing minimum wage, overtime, and child labor standards. The publication focuses on the federal wage-hour statutory scheme, including laws regulating work under government procurement contracts and federally assisted projects, plus state wage-hour provisions and their relationship to federal legislation. Wages & Hours: Law and Practice examines the Fair Labor Standards Act, Equal Pay Act, Portal-to-Portal Act, Walsh-Healy Public Contracts Act, Davis-Bacon Act, Copeland Anti-Kickback Act, and Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act. It also discusses the evaluation and investigation of a wage-hour claim and provides sample litigation forms.
