Which of the following spheres of the employer-employee relationship is not usually governed by individual state governments? A. Vacation pay B. Unclaimed wages C. Severance pay D. Overtime pay Answer: D Overtime pay is not typically governed by individual state governments. Key Takeaway: According to the FLSA, an employee in any given business must be classified as either exempt or nonexempt. In order to be exempt, an employee must be paid a salary of at least $23,660 per year. An employee who is entitled to hourly pay (at minimum wage or above), overtime, and protections under child labor and equal pay, that employee is considered to be non-exempt. Because FLSA is a federal policy, overtime pay is not typically governed by individual state governments. Question: 55 Which act is also known as the Anti-Kickback Act? A. Copeland Act B. The Stark Law C. Bayh-Dole Act D. Model Business Corporation Act Answer: A The Copeland Act is also known as the Anti-Kickback Act.
