Enforcement
  • FLSA enforcement is carried out by Wage and Hour staff throughout the U.S
  • Where violations are found, Wage and Hour advises employers of the steps needed to correct violations, secures agreement to comply in the future and supervises voluntary payment of back wages as applicable
  • A 2-year statute of limitations generally applies to the recovery of back pay. In the case of a willful violation, a 3-year statute of limitations may apply

Enforcement

In the event there is not a voluntary agreement to comply and/or pay back wages, the Wage and Hour Division may:

  • Bring suit to obtain an injunction to restrain the employer from violating the FLSA, including the withholding of proper minimum wage and overtime
  • Bring suit for back wages and an equal amount as liquidated damages

An employee may file a private suit for back pay and an equal amount as liquidated damages, plus attorney’s fees and court costs
