The law of hiring is a patchwork of rules. Some are directly stated in federal or state statutes and regulations, some are interpreted or derived from statutes, and others are rules of common law. In the public sector, other rules derive from the federal and state constitutions. This book covers the law of recruitment and selection as it applies to North Carolina local government and community college employers. The book will also benefit mental health authorities, water and sewer authorities, public health authorities, local ABC boards, and Councils of Government. Initial chapters of the book survey the various rules that comprise the law of hiring for public employers. Later chapters look more closely at the different stages of the hiring process. Although the book primarily focuses on how laws impact North Carolina local governments, it also covers these federal laws applicable to other states: -Fair Credit Reporting Act -Immigration Reform and Control Act -Americans with Disabilities Act -Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act -federal anti-discrimination laws -Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) The book includes an index of cases, an index of statutes, a subject index, and five appendixes related to small employers, affirmative action, validation of employment selection devices, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the EEOC.

The Fair Labor Standards Act

Author: William G. Whittaker

Publisher: Nova Publishers

ISBN: 9781590335161

Category: Law

Page: 63

View: 3812

We often define ourselves by our work, with a frequent introductory question being, 'What do you do?' Because we devote so much of our lives to our jobs, anything affecting them is of special concern to us. The federal government has assumed a role of protecting the rights of labourers, with the prime example being the Fair Labor Standards Act, which is the primary federal statute in the area of minimum wage, overtime pay, and child labour. Since its adoption in 1938, the act has undergone several amendments and periodic changes. A constant issue is the level of the minimum wage, with many public officials and labour groups calling for its raise. Some though, have made proposals to weaken federal wage protection and exempt certain businesses from the law. Heated debate continues on both sides of this topic, which so closely impacts a significant portion of the population. Federal oversight of labour and work conditions is a fact of life, and the standards by which authorities fulfil this task need to be understood. This book studies the history behind and application of the Fair Labor Standards Act in its three distinct areas of minimum wage, overtime pay, and child labour. information this book holds becomes necessary to developing a clear vision of how the government influences the 'workaday world'.
