This treatise helps practitioners not only understand FLSA coverage and exemptions, but also determine why and how to proceed on a particular course for clients. It provides point-by-point evaluations of each FLSA exemption and discusses such issues as collective action litigation brought under the FLSA by individual private plaintiffs; “hybrid” actions involving both state and federal law claims; and elements of enforcement actions and litigation brought by the Secretary of Labor. All discussions provide meticulous citations and footnotes—with decisions broken out by circuit.<p> </p>
