Our Recent Third Circuit Victory

Our firm is especially proud of our role in Knepper v. Rite Aid Corp., 675 F.3d 249 (3d Cir. 2012), wherein the Third Circuit held that workers participating in FLSA collective actions may simultaneously assert class action claims under state wage and hour laws.  The decision rejects the reasoning of at least 15 separate district court opinions.  The opinion, which received nationwide attention, is one of the year’s most important employment rights opinions.  Pete Winebrake argued the appeal at the Third Circuit, and our winning brief was written by both our firm and our friends at Klafter Olsen & Lesser LLP (Rye Brook, NY).  Please do not hesitate to call if you ever need assistance litigating wage and overtime claims on a class-wide basis.
