Seventh Circuit Holds Employer Not Liable Under FLSA for Employee’s Off-The-Clock Work

Ogletree Deakins • December 22, 2011
On December 14, 2011, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit held in Kellar v. Summit Seating Inc., ____ F.3d ____ (7th Cir. 2011), that a former employee who claimed she worked 15 to 45 minutes every day without pay before the start of her scheduled shift failed to make out a claim for back pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Indiana Wage Payment Statute. In reaching this decision, the court found that there was no evidence that her employer knew or had reason to know she was performing this work.
