You have the right to properly be paid. Two laws protect that right:

  1. Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes overtime rights, and minimum wage laws. It also regulates child labor standards and record keeping.  The FLSA also sets forth what type of employees are exempted from the Act.
  2. The Equal Pay Act requires that women be paid the same that men are paid for the same work at the same place. Learn more about the Equal Pay Act. (link to longer blurb you already have)
