Partner Carrie Hoffman Talks FLSA with Androvett

04.23.12

Gardere Labor and Employment Partner Carrie Hoffman spoke to Androvett Legal Media & Marketing about the increase in lawsuits alleging failure to pay overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

"Employers should not provide smart phones or remote access to non-exempt employees unless they have policies in place to ensure those employees are being paid for all hours worked," says Ms. Hoffman. "The FLSA has remained mostly unchanged since its enactment in 1938. Previously, when you punched out of work, you were done with work for the day. It's easier now to blur the lines, but employers who fail to adhere to the strict rules of payment for all hours worked will likely find themselves facing expensive litigation."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
