Actions Under the FLSA

  • The FLSA grants employees access to a judicial forum in either state or federal court.
  • An FLSA action, class action collective action or almost any type of overtime action may be brought forward within two years from the date of the violation. If however, there was a "willful violation," the suit may be brought forward within three years. The burden of proof often falls on the employer/defendant, not on the employee/plaintiff.
  • FLSA claims are subject to arbitration in the event of an employee signing a pre-dispute arbitration agreement. There is nothing in the FLSA text that supports precluding arbitration.
