BOOK

The Fair Labor Standards Act, Second Edition, with 2014 Cumulative Supplement

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.

DESCRIPTION

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
