Initial Discovery Protocols for Fair Labor Standards Act Cases Not Pleaded as Collective Actions

The Initial Discovery Protocols for Fair Labor Standards Act Cases Not Pleaded as Collective Actions (Initial Discovery Protocols) provide a new pretrial procedure for certain types of Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) cases. These protocols, developed by a committee of attorneys experienced with FLSA matters, are meant to “encourage the parties and their counsel to exchange information and documents early in the case, help frame the issues to be resolved, and plan for more efficient and targeted discovery.”
