Washington, D.C. — Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) has introduced S. 2878, the Flexibility for Workers Education Act.
The legislation modifies the Fair Labor Standards Act, to allow employers to offer voluntary growth and development opportunities outside of work hours to their employees that relate to the employee’s job without counting towards hours worked.
The bill is also sponsored by Senators Mike Braun (R-IN) and Roger Marshall (R-KS).
The House companion bill is led by Rep. Ashley Hinson (R-IA).
The bill is supported by the International Franchise Association.

Sen. Budd said in a statement:
“At a time when small business owners across our state are struggling to find qualified candidates, now is the time to cut the burdensome red tape that has stifled the upward mobility of thousands of workers. I’m proud to put forward a proposal that supports access to innovative education options, skills development tools, and career growth.”
