Coverage - Profit or Non-Profit Enterprise

Enterprise coverage does not apply to charitable, educational, religious or similar activities of private non-profit enterprises except where such activities are performed in connection with an FLSA covered hospital, nursing care facility or school, or if the enterprise is operated in connection with commercial ventures, such as a gift shop or thrift store operated by the organization.

If you are not certain whether your enterprise is operated for profit or not, you might consider asking a knowledgeable person at work.

Do you work for a non-profit enterprise that performs charitable, educational or religious activities?
