Wage and Hour Division (WHD)
Section 64c06: Salvation Army
- The Salvation Army's position is that individuals in its rehabilitation program (called "beneficiaries") are not employees under the FLSA. Although WH may not agree with this position, do not initiate C/As until receiving clearance from both the RA and the Child Labor and Special Employment Team, NO/OEP. Advise beneficiaries who complain that this WH policy has no effect on their private-action rights under section 16(b) of the FLSA.
- Investigations involving complaints filed by individuals (with or without disabilities) which the Salvation Army currently considers employees, and for whom FLSA coverage is not in question, shall be handled in the normal manner.
