Find out if State law regulates your work hours.

Work hours may be regulated either by state or federal law. Regulation includes laws requiring employers to pay employees premium pay for overtime hours, or to give employees rest and/or meal breaks after a certain number of hours of work. In those states that do not regulate work hours, the Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the work hours standards for employees in that state.
