So how do you know if the FLSA applies to you? There are two ways: “enterprise coverage” and “individual coverage.”
Businesses must have at least two employees and have an annual dollar volume of sales or business done of at least $500,000. Hospitals, businesses providing medical or nursing care for residents, schools and preschools, and government agencies are also covered by the FLSA.
This includes employees whose work regularly involves them in commerce between states. This includes those who produce goods (such as a work assembling components in a factory or a secretary typing letters in an office) that will be sent out of state, those who make phone calls to persons in other states, those who handle records of interstate transactions, those who travel to other states on their job, and those who do janitorial work in buildings where goods are produced for shipment to another state.
If you have any questions regarding FLSA and if it applies to you, please speak to an employment law lawyer.
