Top Official Held Personally Liable Under FLSA

Fisher Phillips • July 19, 2013
A recent decision by the Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals (Connecticut, New York, and Vermont) is a reminder that individual business owners and management members can face claims of personal liability for federal Fair Labor Standards Act violations. In Irizarry v. Catsimatidis, the court found that a supermarket company's owner, chairman, and CEO was an "employer" within the FLSA's meaning and was therefore personally liable for millions in FLSA collective-action liability. The court so concluded even while acknowledging that there was no evidence that the owner himself either was responsible for the FLSA violations or ever directly managed or interacted with the plaintiffs.
