Eleventh Circuit Affirms Plaintiffs Did Not Show Willfulness Under FLSA Despite Employer Being Sued

Phelps Dunbar LLP • December 19, 2012
The statute of limitations for a lawsuit under the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") is two years, unless the plaintiff proves that the employer's conduct was willful, in which case the limitations period is three years. See 29 U.S.C. § 255(a). Conduct is willful if the employer knew its conduct violated the FLSA or showed reckless disregard for compliance with the FLSA. See McLaughlin v. Richland Shoe Co., 486 U.S. 128 (1988).

Seventh Circuit | Half a Loaf: Court Rejects ADA "Safe Harbor" But Approves Pre-Regulations Wellness Program as "Voluntary" The EEOC’s attack on employee wellness programs as unlawful under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) that began in 2014 with three lawsuits, and continued with more recent regulations under these laws, has taken another turn. On September 19, 2016, a federal court in Wisconsin denied the EEOC’s summary judgment motion in one of the three cases that directly challenged an employer’s wellness program requiring employees who sought health plan coverage with a wellness component to undergo a medical examination or pay higher premiums.
