    Genesis Healthcare Corp. v. Symczyk, 133 S. Ct. 1523 (U.S. 2013) (0 other reports)

In Genesis Healthcare Corp. v. Symczyk, +133 S. Ct. 1523 (U.S. 2013), the US Supreme Court ruled that Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) collective actions cannot continue if the plaintiff's claim is resolved before additional plaintiffs join in.

The ruling may make it more difficult for employees to file costly FLSA lawsuits that involve multiple plaintiffs, but its applicability remains unclear.
