FLSA Minimum Wage Bill Introduced

Legislation related to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) minimum wage standard has been introduced in both the U.S. House and Senate.

It is thought that the legislation could be “dead on arrival”, but employers should be aware of the potential changes in the event that the bill does pass.
