Kasten v. Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Corp., No. 08-2820

By FindLaw Staff | Last updated on

In an action brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act's retaliation provision, district court judgment against plaintiff is affirmed where: 1) the plain language of 29 U.S.C. sec. 215(a)(3) includes internal complaints as protected activity; and 2) unwritten, purely verbal complaints are not protected activity under the statute as the FLSA's use of the phrase "file any complaint" requires a plaintiff employee to submit some sort of writing.
