Pennsylvania Wage Lawyer Practice Tip: FLSA Settlements Should Not Contain Broad Release Language

In the past few years, federal district courts in Pennsylvania have been extremely hostile towards FLSA settlements in which the Plaintiffs release claims that extend beyond wage and hour claims.  In this regard, Pennsylvania wage and hour lawyers are directed to the following examples, which we hope you will find helpful: Altnor v. Preferred Freezer Services, Inc., 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 92786, *34-35 (E.D. Pa. July 18, 2017); Rubbo v. PeopleScout, Inc., 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 72578, *7-9 (E.D. Pa. May 11, 2017); Kraus v. PA Fit II, LLC, 155 F. Supp. 3d 516, 532-33 (E.D. Pa. 2016); Howard v. Philadelphia Housing Authority, 197 F. Supp. 2d 773, 779-80 (E.D. Pa. 2016); Bettger v. Crossmark, Inc., 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 7213, *22-26 (M.D. Pa. Jan. 22, 2015).
