The Fair Labor Standards Act, Second Edition, goes beyond descriptions of FLSA coverage and exemptions to help determine why and how to proceed on a particular course for clients. The treatise contains discussion of 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. It also offers point-by-point evaluations of each FLSA exemption; proven steps and strategies for dealing with enforcement, remedies and litigation; special considerations for determining compensable hours, minimum wages and overtime pay; discussions concerning Department of Labor (DOL) administration, state and local government coverage, child labor issues and recordkeeping; and meticulous citations and footnotes—with decisions broken out by circuit.

The 2014 Cumulative Supplement covers:

  • Increasing judicial deference to the Secretary of Labor: its current shape, including discussion of new upcoming regulations (e.g., domestic companions)
  • Unpaid interns: the courts’ handling of the influx of wage claims by interns, students, and trainees
  • Growth in Section 7(i) overtime exemption cases: the developing case law involving exempt employees paid commissions by retail or service establishments
