FLSA Overtime Action

In Ritchie v. St. Louis Jewish Light, No. 10-1356, an action claiming that plaintiff's employment was terminated in retaliation for insisting on recording her overtime work, the court affirmed the dismissal of the action where informal Fair Labor Standards Act complaints to one's employer were not protected.

 

As the court wrote:  "Lisa Ritchie, a former employee of St. Louis Jewish Light, filed a federal court complaint against Larry Levin, Ritchie's supervisor, and St. Louis Jewish Light (collectively, appellees), pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. § 215, claiming that her employment was terminated in retaliation for insisting on recording her overtime work."
