Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

Every state has its own set of rules and regulations that govern work conditions. However, those laws must also adhere to the basic standards set by the federal government. The Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA) determines the basic expectations for employers as it pertains to the wages and hours of their employees. In addition, FLSA also sets the standard concerning what's considered "working" and what isn't.

For example, your commute to your job doesn't count as work, so you won't get paid for that time. Nevertheless, you should be getting paid for the work you do regardless of what time it is or where the work is being done.
