TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
No, it does not. Federal law enacted specific requirements
under the FLSA that are nationwide. States cannot enact
requirments that undercut the federal, but are free to enact
requirements that enhance them. In the event that federal
and state requirements differ, whichever favors the worker
the most wins out. Companies with employees in multiple
states usually find it simpler to have a single set of rules
for all locations and only vary their pay rates and some
benefits to suit local markets, but there is nothing in federal
law that would prevent a company that was hell-bent on
burying itself in its own paperwork from having a different
set of employee rules and handbooks for every state.
