Cheryl Orr Quoted by SHRM on FLSA and State Overtime Pay Rules

San Francisco partner Cheryl Orr was quoted in an SHRM article titled “How Do State Overtime Pay Rules Differ from Federal Law?” The article covers differences between the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state overtime wage laws.

Cheryl explains therein that “[t]he FLSA expressly reserves to states the right to enact more-generous overtime laws.” California is one such example.

Other states may have less strict requirements than the federal law or may lack overtime provisions entirely. Cheryl noted that for these states, less stringent state laws apply only to employers and employees not covered by the FLSA.

This is the second article in SHRM’s series on wage-and-hour compliance.
