Wages and Hours
Work Hours and
Other Pay Issues
Job sharing means that two (or more) workers share the duties of one
full-time job, each working part time; or two or more workers who have
unrelated part-time assignments share the same budget line.
The Fair Labor Standards Act
(FLSA) does not address job sharing; rather it is a matter of agreement
between an employer and an employee (or the employee's representative). The FLSA is administered and enforced by the Wage and Hour Division of the Employment Standards Administration.
