United States Second Circuit

Fernandez v. Zoni Language Ctrs., Inc., 16-1689

In an employment suit brought by English language teachers, alleging minimum wage and overtime claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. sections 201 et seq., the district court's dismissal is affirmed over plaintiffs' arguments that it was error to afford defendants the FLSA's exemption for bona fide professional employees, section 213(a)(1), because defendants are not 'educational establishment[s],' as required by law, 29 C.F.R. sections 541.303(a), 541.204(b).
