This summer, the Fair Labor Standards Act celebrates its 80th anniversary. Is a Depression-era law still an effective way to regulate the 21st Century workplace? If the FLSA was written today, what would it look like?

Understand the common challenges and frustrations employers face with FLSA compliance.
Learn more about the protections the FLSA provides workers and whether they are adequate.
