Employment Law Compliance Plan

SUBJECT: Employment Law Compliance Plan
I have been given the assignment to create the employment law compliance plan for Bradley
Stonefield who is opening a limousine service in Austin, Texas. Bradley is planning to have 25
employees in his first year of business. This employment law compliance plan will help the
company to be established in a lawful way.   This plan will help eliminate some of the headaches
Bradley would be facing without it.
Employment law compliance is imperative to the success of Bradley’s business. Employment laws were put in place to protect the employer and employee.   Those laws are the legal guidelines for both the employer and employees conduct. Subsequently, any of these federal and Texas state laws may apply:
  * The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 amended to Equal Pay Act of 1963
  * The Civil Rights Act of 1964
  * The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986
  * The Texas Labor Code Workers’ Compensation Act
  * The Texas Minimum Wage Law

Equal pay Act of 1963

The Equal Pay Act is an amendment to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. The Equal

Pay Act stipulates that men and women working for the same company be paid the

same rate of pay for equal work, skill, effort, responsibility, and working conditions. (Cascio,

2013, p. 82).   In addition the original law the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938 enforced

employers to pay a specific minimum wage and overtime wages. The FLSA also enforced the

rule that non-exempt employees must receive overtime pay for any hours worked over 40 in one

week at a rate of one and one-half of regular pay rate. (Kobelan, 2015). (Kobelan, 2015), “In

Texas, employers are also required to pay non-exempt employees at a rate at least equal to the

federal minimum wage, which is currently $7.25.”
