Ted Hollis Quoted in Law360 Article About Possibility of FLSA Applying to Inmates

Media Mention

Ted Hollis, a Labor & Employment partner in the Quarles & Brady Indianapolis office, was quoted in a Law360 article about the possibility that a recent circuit court ruling could open the door to inmates being classified as employees for work done while in detention.

A Fourth Circuit appellate court ruling creates the possibility that inmates could qualify as employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Hollis explained that this scenario underscores the importance of employers thinking carefully about how they classify workers.

An excerpt:

It's imperative for any business dealing with workers to think upfront about how they are classified, said Ted Hollis, a partner with management-side firm Quarles & Brady LLP.

"If you're not classifying them as employees … make sure you've got a reasoned approach for why that is and that you've thought it through," he said, "because the presumption often is going to be that they are employees as a starting point."
