CHAPTER SEVEN

State Regulation1

IN THIS CHAPTER, STATE WAGE and hour guidelines are defined and explained. Unlike federal regulation, state regulations vary greatly among the states. It is critical for the organization to recognize and stay current on the differences. Many employers operate in more than one state and/or have individual employees who work in more than one state. This adds even more complexity that the Workforce Asset Management Professional (WAM-Pro) should consider during system design and administration. Workforce management (WFM) systems are the place where regulations materialize and influence how workers are managed and compensated. This chapter is an overview and discussion of some wage and hour topics, offering examples and configuration tips. In addition, there are exceptions to regulations, so employers should check with the state agencies that provide information on their rules to assess their individual compliance requirements.
