US DOL Opinion Letter FLSA2019-9

Permissible rounding practices for calculating an employee’s hours worked

In this July 1, 2019 opinion letter by the Department of Labor, Administrator Cheryl M. Stanton delivers the opinion that the organization submitting the inquiry does indeed comply with FLSA regulations and is therefore in compliance with the SCA.

My reading of the full FLSA2019-9 opinion letter


Service Contract Act of 1965 (SCA) – 41 U.S.C. §§ 6701-6707, is a US labor law that requires the government to use its bargaining power to ensure fair wages for workers when it buys services from private contractors (Wikipedia).

Title 29, Part 4 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 4.123(d)  outlines all of the SCA exemptions.

Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) section 6(a)(1) – outlining federal minimum wage regulations.

I will be adding more Opinion Letters and US DOL Fact Sheet readings. Remember to signup to receive notice when I post these updates.
