Cozen O’Connor: FLSA: Motel Staff Ineligible for Federal Wage Law Coverage

FLSA: Motel Staff Ineligible for Federal Wage Law Coverage

Monday, August 8, 2016

John Ho, a member of Cozen O'Connor's Labor & Employment department, discusses FLSA coverage on Bloomberg BNA. The FLSA applies to all employees of businesses that exceed $500,000 in annual revenue. This is called “enterprise coverage,” said John Ho. “If your annual volume of business is $500,000 or over, everyone is in, period,” he said. “It doesn't matter what specific individuals do. Every employee that works for that enterprise” is covered, unless an exemption applies. “If, for whatever reason, a business doesn't meet that annual dollar threshold,” the FLSA may apply “if the particular person bringing the lawsuit is engaged in interstate commerce,” John said. This is called “individual coverage,” he said.
