  • Employers have increasingly been faced with collective actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") involving wage claims by current and former employees which are expensive to defend or to settle. Collective actions are filed by one or more current or former employees claiming they and other similarly situated individuals have been adversely affected by alleged violations of the FLSA by the employer. That group of individuals are given a notice of the action and have the alternative of opting in to the collective action.
