CenterLight Health System resolves FLSA misclassification case

Clients CenterLight Health System

In July 2013, two former Marketing Representatives filed a complaint against Jones Day client CenterLight Health System in the Southern District of New York under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York Labor Law, alleging that they were misclassified as exempt employees. On August 20, 2013, CenterLight filed an Answer, maintaining that the Marketing Representatives are properly classified as exempt. After a period of informal disclosures, we demonstrated that the case did not present issues appropriate for class resolution and the matter was amicably resolved in a manner favorable to CenterLight.
