Department of Labor


Alta California Regional Center (ACRC) has partnered with the Federal Government: Department of Labor and the California State Government: Department of Industrial Relations to develop resources and trainings for ACRC providers. Providers of ACRC must comply with federal and state labor laws. The resources available in the posts are provided for your information.


Fair Labor Standards Act

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is the federal law that requires covered employers to pay nonexempt employees at least the federal minimum wage for all hours worked and overtime compensation for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. To comply with the FLSA’s requirements, therefore, an employer must determine what time constitutes “hours worked.” You can review the general presentation. Also available is the memorandum for the exclusion of sleep time. The Residential Care Facilities under the FLSA is available for review. 


California Labor Commissioner’s Office

The mission of the California Labor Commissioner’s Office is to ensure a just day’s pay in every workplace in the State and promote economic justice through robust enforcement of labor laws. By combating wage theft, protecting workers from retaliation, and educating the public, they put earned wages into workers’ pockets and help level the playing field for law-abiding employers.
