FLSA section 11(c), 29 U.S.C. 211(c), requires all employers covered by the FLSA to make, keep and preserve records of their employees’ wages, hours and other conditions and practices of employment.

The regulation also requires the student’s parent or guardian to sign or otherwise consent to the agreement in order for it to be valid. Regulations 29 CFR 570.35a(b)(4)(ii) requires state education agencies to keep a record of the names and addresses of each school enrolling WECEP students and the number of enrollees in each unit. The state or local educational agency office must keep a copy of the written training agreement for each student participating in the WECEP.
