CASE NO.: 8:10-cv-435-T-23TBM.

May 20, 2010



The plaintiff sues (Doc. 1) under the Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 U.S.C. § 201 et seq. (the "FLSA"), to recover overtime compensation. The parties move (Doc. 19) for approval of the proposed settlement. See Lynn's Food Stores, Inc. v. United States, 679 F.2d 1350 (11th Cir. 1982); Dees v. Hydradry, Inc., ___ F. Supp. 2d ___, 2010 WL 1539813 (M.D. Fla. Apr. 19, 2010). The settlement (Doc. 19-1), however, contains a confidentiality agreement, which contravenes FLSA policy. See Dees, 2010 WL 1539813 at *9. Accordingly, the motion (Doc. 19) is DENIED and the settlement (Doc. 19-1) is REJECTED. The parties may move for approval of an amended settlement agreement no later than June 1, 2010.

ORDERED in Tampa, Florida.
