In the retail industry, staying on top of legal compliance is crucial to avoid costly penalties and maintain a fair work environment for employees. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has set certain standards for the retail industry, such as minimum wage, overtime pay, record keeping, etc. Ensuring compliance with these regulations is a challenging task, but with the correct technology, such as the UKG/Kronos HCM and CloudApper AI TimeClock, retailers can streamline their compliance efforts and focus on growing their business.

Understanding FLSA Compliance in Retail

Federal Overtime Pay

FLSA mandates that covered, non-exempt employees receive overtime pay at a rate of 1.5 times their regular rate of pay if they have worked for more than 40 hours in a workweek.

Youth Minimum Wage

The FLSA requires employers to pay a youth minimum wage ($4.25 per hour) to employees who are under 20 years old during the first 90 days of employment. 

Recordkeeping Requirements

FLSA requires employers to maintain records of wages, hours worked, and other relevant information for covered employees.
