Second Circuit Finds Supermarket Owner Personally Liable as Employer Under FLSA

The owner, president, and chief executive officer of a supermarket chain in New York is personally liable for his companies' default on payment obligations under an overtime settlement with a class of store managers because he is an “employer” under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Irizarry v. Catsimatidis, ____F.3d___ (2d Cir. July 9, 2013). 

The decision is lengthly and worth a read for those interested in this area of law.
