Think your employees are satisfied with their work-life balance? They may be, but a recent survey signals they may not be as satisfied as you think. WorkplaceTrends.com, a human resources research portal, and CareerArc, a recruitment and outplacement firm, released their Workplace Flexibility Study in February. The survey of 1,087 professionals—both employed and those seeking employment—and 116 HR professionals found that 67 percent of the HR professionals think that their employees enjoy balanced lives. But the survey also found that significant numbers of the professionals—45 percent overall and 35 percent of the job seekers—feel their work doesn’t leave them enough time each week for personal activities.
Federally, wage and hour laws are governed by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). This law sets out minimum wage and overtime provisions---two issues that frequently arise. Virtually all employers are covered by the FLSA. In additional to federal wage and hour laws, states, and even localities, set forth their own provisions. As an employer, it is important to know which state and local wage and hour laws apply to you and your business.
