On March 6, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit issued its decision in Lamonica v. Safe Hurricane Shutters Inc., No. 11-15743 (11th Cir. 2013). In Lamonica, two hurricane shutter installers, both of whom were undocumented aliens, sought compensation for unpaid overtime and liquidated damages under the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA"). The defendants claimed, among other things, that their illegal immigration status barred recovery under the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Hoffman Plastic Compounds Inc. v. NLRB, 535 U.S. 137 (2002). In a 2-1 decision, the Eleventh Circuit upheld the FLSA judgment and concluded that nothing in Hoffman overruled Eleventh Circuit precedent that undocumented aliens remain "employees" who can recover damages under the FLSA.
