Seyfarth Shaw’s Wage & Hour Litigation Blog is a resource for employers to stay current on developments in wage and hour law, including recent court decisions, legislative updates, and Department of Labor compliance, rule-making and enforcement activities.
Our Blog is aimed at providing this information in a readily accessible format for C-suite executives, corporate in-house counsel and HR professionals concerned about the growing threat of wage and hour class and collective actions. Wage and hour lawsuits are by far the most common type of employment litigation, with the number of these lawsuits far outpacing any other form of employment litigation and with verdicts and settlements steadily rising. Whether from challenges to the classification of employees and independent contractors, allegations of unpaid compensable time, claims of improper calculation of regular and overtime rates, or assertions of noncompliance with pay laws enforced by federal or state departments of labor, wage and hour issues pose bet-the-company risk and may impact a company’s business model.
Our Blog, written by Seyfarth’s team of experienced wage and hour litigators and counselors from the firm’s dedicated Wage & Hour Litigation Practice Group, brings to the business community thought leadership on cutting edge wage and hour legal issues with the goal of providing employers with tools necessary to reduce their potential exposure. We welcome your suggestions for making our Blog as useful to your company as possible and look forward to being part of the discussion on this critical topic.
