This week ACS joined forces with the National Consumers League to mark the 80th anniversary of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938.
During an all-day symposium at the Georgetown University Law Center, we celebrated successes – like the recent victory that hourly workers and advocates had last week codifying a 2011 U.S. Department of Labor rule stating that tips are the property of the worker who earns them and not their employers. Last week’s tip rule amended the FLSA. We discussed other legal frameworks that we need to change and update to meet the needs of our 21st century workforce.
