How many FLSA collective actions are there?
Not too many people know that collective action lawsuits under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are among the most challenging lawsuits an employer can face. It is important to know that it takes months, even years, until the courts evaluate the collective action claims. Needless to say, the Fair Labor Standards Act provides standards for minimum wage, overtime pay and child labor provisions. The exact number of FLSA collective actions is not known. Anyway, there is an ascending trend when it comes to the number of FLSA collective actions.
