The FLSA is a federal law that protects workers in every state, but California has created its own Fair Labor Standards Act, which includes the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). Together, these provide even larger protections for workers than federal laws do. When a federal statue might disagree with a California rule, whichever law benefits the employee more is what will be upheld in court.
