The Fair Labor Standards Act on Per Diem and Truck Pay for Oilfield Workers
In 1938, the Fair Labor Standards Act was approved by Congress, establishing a 40-hour work week and a requirement for overtime pay. This rate of 1.5 times the usual amount of compensation for one hour of work must be applied to every hour beyond 40 that an employee works unless they meet specific requirements.
