Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

The College is subject to many provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act administered by the NYS Department of Labor. The act applies to wage and hour issues and subjects of regulation include: minimum wages, hours worked, overtime pay and equal pay for equal work. The act allows eligible public employees, such as at the College, to receive compensatory time at a time and one-half rate for overtime in lieu of cash payments, subject to choice by the employee.
