Tennessee Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA): What you need to know

The state of Tennessee does not have a minimum wage or overtime law. Because the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) applies to virtually all enterprises involved in interstate activities, most Tennessee employers are covered by the federal law. Employers that are not covered by the federal law are not required to pay the federal minimum wage. In these cases, wages are determined by agreement (either written or oral) between the employer and the employee at the time of hiring.
Tennessee’s Wage Regulations Act now requires that employees bring their wage complaints to the state Department of Labor, rather than initiating a civil court proceeding. Initiating a complaint in a civil court proceeding was previously allowed.
