Immigration Status Irrelevant to FLSA and State Wage Claims

Business Management Daily (03/18/12)

A federal court hearing a Fair Labor Standards Act case has ruled that an employee’s immigration status is not relevant and cannot be mentioned to the jury. An employee of BAE Cleaners who transported laundry sued the firm, claiming he had not been paid minimum wage and overtime under the FLSA and New York state labor laws. BAE Cleaners asked the court for permission to show that the employee was an illegal immigrant. The court said it could not because that status is irrelevant to whether the employer paid minimum wage and overtime.
