Take the Target Off Your Back: Avoiding Common Wage and Hour Practices That May Lead to Litigation

Events / March 28, 2023

Wage and hour class and collective actions continue unabated, with multiple plaintiff firms across the country bringing such actions on a frequent basis. As employers have improved their own wage and hour practices, plaintiffs have increasingly focused on even more technical claims and state law claims and on trying to expand employers’ overtime obligations in general. This program will present a practical view of wage and hour litigation and discuss in particular the current most popular targets for wage and hour litigation, including claims for the donning and doffing of routine personal protective equipment, meal periods (both paid and unpaid), tip credit issues, and regular rate issues based on shift differentials and bonuses. The presenters will discuss steps employers can take to minimize the risk that such claims will be brought against them.
