Preschools Under the Fair Labor Standards Act. (Revised).
Employment Standards Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Wage and Hour Div.
This pamphlet provides general information concerning the application of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to employees of preschool centers. The contents include discussion of the purview of the Act regarding preschools; monetary requirements such as minimum wages and employee facilities; provisions for equal pay, overtime pay, work hours, exemptions, child labor, records, and enforcement; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Federal Wage Garnishment Law. The FLSA, which is administered by the U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division, was amended in 1972 to cover all activities performed in connection with the operation of a preschool (whether public or private and whether operated for profit or not for profit) regardless of the annual dollar volume of the institution, provided there are in the enterprise employees engaged in commerce or in the production of goods for commerce.
