Federal Fair Labor Standards Act
The Fair Labor Standards Act, referred to as the Federal Wage and Hour Law, applies to Webster University. This law governs minimum wages, overtime payments, payroll time sheets and job classification. Time sheets are to be filled out daily by all hourly employees for each pay period. They are to be signed by the employee and the supervisor and submitted to the Payroll Office by such time as designated.
The Wage and Hour Laws were established for the protection of the employee. However, the employer is charged with the responsibility of enforcing the regulations and is subject to audit by the government and to a fine for violations. Therefore, accuracy of time sheets is required. Time records must reflect the exact time worked and the exact time off.
The Federal Wage and Hour Law prohibits employees from working extra hours in one week to be retained for compensatory time in later week. All salaried/exempt employees should complete exception reports for any vacation, personal and sick time and forward them to the Payroll Office.
Employee Rights Under National Labor Relations Act
The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) guarantees the right of employees to organize and bargain collectively with their employers, and to engage in other protected concerted activity or to refrain from engaging in any of the above activity. Employees covered by the NLRA* are protected from certain types of employer and union misconduct.
