Perez v. Mountaire Farms, Inc., 09-1917

In a Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) dispute, 29 U.S.C. sections 201 et seq., judgment of the district court in favor of plaintiffs is affirmed in part and reversed in part where: 1) under the FLSA, time spent donning and doffing protective gear at the beginning and the end of each workday is compensable, while mid-shift donning and doffing is not; and 2) defendant's violations were not willful, thus triggering only a two-year statute of limitations for claims for back pay.
