STUDENT ATHLETES CRY "FOUL" UNDER FLSA

Melanie Kilpatrick ([email protected].com)

On Tuesday, a decision was issued by the U.S. District Court finding that student athletes who play on NCAA teams are not "employees" entitled to minimum wage payments under the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA").  At first glance, it might seem that this decision does not impact typical employer-employee relations, but it serves as a reminder that it can be easy to run afoul of the federal wage-and-hour provisions when hosting unpaid internships.
