New Decisions as of June 2003

These pages summarize the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and how the U.S. Office of Personnel Management applies it to current and former employees of the United States Federal Government. For convenience, the phrase "current and former employees of the United States Federal Government" may be shortened to "Federal employees." Throughout these pages, "you" refers to a Federal employee and "we" or "us" refers to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

If you are NOT a current or former employee of the United States Federal Government, these pages do not apply to you. Please read the "Who does what?" page or go to the Wage and Hour Division of the Employment Standards Administration in the United States Department of Labor.

Please read our cautionary note
