Under the FLSA a company is prohibited from retaliating against any employee who files a complaint or institutes any proceeding under FLSA or who has or is about to testify in any such proceeding. Anti-retaliation provisions of FLSA may be interpreted broadly in favor of employees. An employer who retaliates or discriminates against an employee in violation of this statute is potentially subject to fines or even criminal prosecution, and the affected employee may be entitled to legal or equitable relief. In appropriate cases, courts or juries can also award punitive damages. In response to this lawsuit, Teleperformance, within legal bounds, can if it chooses establish new policies that may affect the way things are done. But an employer cannot enforce new policies only against the employees who bring a lawsuit such as this one. Thus if an employer such as Teleperformance implements new policies, such policies will affect all employees.
