State Labor Laws

All states in the U.S. have their own labor regulations.  Most state labor laws mirror the regulations set forth by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.  However many states have created additional regulations such as meal breaks, rest breaks, daily overtime, etc. that are not part of federal labor law. If your company is subject to both the federal labor law and the state labor law you must comply with the regulation that most benefits the employee.
