The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, and other labor standards.

Under the FLSA, employees are classified as either "exempt" or "non-exempt" based on their job duties and salary.

Non-exempt employees are entitled to overtime pay at a rate of at least one and a half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. Non-exempt employees are also entitled to the federal minimum wage.

Exempt employees, on the other hand, are not entitled to overtime pay and are generally paid a salary instead of an hourly wage. Exempt employees must meet certain criteria related to their job duties and salary level to be exempt from overtime pay under the FLSA.

The FLSA's exemption rules can be complex, and employers must carefully evaluate each employee's job duties and pay to determine whether they are exempt or non-exempt under the law.
