School-to-Work Opportunities. Fair Labor Standards Act and the North Carolina Wage and Hour Act. A Guide to Work-Based Learning, Federal and State Child Labor Laws, Minimum Wage Provisions, and the Provisions of Comparable North Carolina Laws. 3rd Edition.
North Carolina State Dept. of Labor, Raleigh.
This guide for work-based learning, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and the North Carolina Wage and Hours Act is designed to serve employers, educators, agency placement staff, labor organizations, and all those involved in school-to-work initiatives by helping them to understand a variety of issues related to students in the workplace. Based on materials developed by the National Office of School-to-Work Opportunities in support of the School-to-Work Opportunities Act (P.L. 103-239) the guide has been supplemented by the North Carolina Department of Labor with the requirements of North Carolina's youth employment and minimum wage laws. Following an introduction and a one-page overview of school-to-work, the guide is organized in three parts that address issues related to student learning experiences at an employer's worksite and explain when and how North Carolina and federal child labor laws and minimum wage provisions apply. The three parts cover the following: (1) Work-Based Learning; (2) Understanding the Fair Labor Standards Act and Comparable North Carolina laws; and (3) General Information (state and local laws, resources, and workers' compensation).
