United States Second Circuit

Greathouse v. JHS Security Inc., 12-4521

In an retaliation claim brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the district court's judgment in favor of employer is reversed where the US Supreme Court decision in Kasten v. Saint-Globen Performance Plastics Corp, 131 S.Ct. 1325, which held that an oral complaint can serve as a predicate to an FLSA retaliation claim, casts doubt on Lambert v. Genesee Hosp., 10 F. 3d 46 (2d Cir. 1993), the case that formed that basis for the district court's decision.
