The Department of Labor (DOL) has a new fact sheet covering illegal retaliation against employees who complain about possible violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act () Reminder: The FLSA’s anti-retaliation provision applies to all employees, not just nonexempts.
The fact sheet is available at the DOL’s website at http://tinyurl.com/dolfactsheet. Although posting isn’t necessary, you might want to consider doing so. Posting shows your good faith intent to comply with the law.
It’s not so easy to spot an FLSA complaint. Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that employees’ FLSA complaints can be informal and verbal.
All that’s necessary, the court said, is that a complaint is sufficiently clear and detailed for a reasonable employer to understand it, in light of both content and context, as an assertion of rights protected by the law.
