The Working Families Flexibility Act recently passed the House of Representatives and now awaits a Senate vote. This bill aims to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The vote fell largely along party lines, passing the bill 229 to 197. Under this controversial amendment, employers in the private sector could give non-exempt employees compensatory time instead of monetary compensation for overtime worked. Employees would earn comp time at the rate of one and a half hours for every hour of overtime worked.
