with them be permanently enjoined from violating the provisions of Sections 7 and 11(c), 15(a)(2),

commerce, or in an enterprise engaged in commerce or in the production of goods for commerce,
within the meaning of the Act, for workweeks longer than forty (40) hours, unless the employee

than one and one-half times the regular rate at which he or she is employed.
Defendants shall not, contrary to Sections 11(c) and 15(a)(5) of the Act, 29 U.S.C.

restored, and neither the filing of this action nor the entry of this judgment shall bar an action, and
the statute of limitations in such action shall be governed by 29 U.S.C. §255(a). The parties agree
the filing of this action and provisions of this judgment shall not be interpreted to prejudice or
preclude the rights of the Secretary of Labor, or any employees of Defendants, in any action filed
by the Secretary of Labor, or by an employee, under the Act covering violations alleged to have
occurred after February 11, 2014.
Each party agrees to bear his or her own attorneys’ fees, costs, and other expenses
