Employment Law Newsletters
Title VII of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978, known as the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute, grants many employees of most federal executive agencies the right to organize into labor unions. In addition to granting these rights to covered federal employees, the Statute sets forth certain practices by labor organizations or federal employers that are illegal under federal law.
Background and Scope
Congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA) in order to eliminate labor conditions that were detrimental to the health and welfare of workers, including children. The FLSA has four major components: a minimum wage requirement, overtime pay requirements, child labor restrictions, and record keeping directives.
