The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the Department of Labor (DOL) today published a Final Rule in the Federal Register to consolidate amendments and update the content of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938.

These "clean-up regulations" take into account amendments to the FLSA passed as far back as 1974, though many are more recent.

The Final Rule, which goes into effect 60 days from publication, covers topics such as fluctuating work weeks, compensable time while driving a company vehicle, tip pools and tip credits, the limited exemption from overtime for people involved in fire protection activities, the youth opportunity wage, fluctuating workweeks, and much more.

Further changes are expected later this year as the WHD revamps its regulations for record-keeping.
