ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The new Second Edition of The Fair Labor Standards Act addresses and examines the latest developments in litigation under the FLSA. The Second Edition, published by BNA Books, a division of BNA, is written and edited by the Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee of the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Labor and Employment Law.
The Fair Labor Standards Act offers point-by-point evaluations of each FLSA exemption; meticulous citations and footnotes broken out by circuit; proven steps and strategies for dealing with enforcement, remedies, and litigation; special considerations for determining compensable hours, minimum wages, and overtime pay; and discussions on child-labor issues and recordkeeping.
The Second Edition contains expanded discussion of rapidly evolving areas of the law, including:
- "Hybrid" actions involving both state and federal law claims
- Collective action litigation brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act by individual private plaintiffs
- Elements of enforcement actions and litigation brought by the Secretary of Labor
The Second Edition also provides detailed analysis of a number of critical topics, including the 2004 white-collar exemptions, the background of each of the exemptions, and the case law that has come down under the new regulations. The coverage of government employment, for its part, has been augmented to include discussions of the new regulations with respect to the white-collar exemptions. The treatise considers the 2008 SAFETEA-LU Technical Corrections Act as well, which essentially eliminated the motor carrier exemption for any vehicle weighing under 10,000 pounds.
In addition to these developments, the FLSA coverage now includes a detailed description of not only the joint employment issue, but also independent contractor status, as well as an examination of the economic reality test and individual liability of corporate officers and owners. An in-depth look at preliminary and postliminary time, off-the-clock time, and travel time has also been added to the chapter on compensable work time.
The editor-in-chief of the Second Edition of The Fair Labor Standards Act is Ellen C. Kearns (Constangy, Brooks & Smith LLP, Boston, MA). Section publications provide a balanced forum for the views and professional development of practitioners in labor and employment law.
