Individual liability for wage and hour claims

Have any of you ever been sued as an individual for wage and hour claims? Sounds scary.

Kara Shea (href= wrote an interesting article about individual liability for wage and hour claims.

" certain situations, a court or the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) may consider an individual to be an “employer” of someone filing suit under the FLSA — along with the business, agency, or enterprise “employer.” Owners, officers, managers, and HR personnel are the individuals most likely to be deemed joint employers under the Act."
