Wage and Hour Lawsuits Continue to Increase


Once again, the number of new federal wage and hour lawsuits increased in the last year. That’s not a surprise to many of you, as you see the advertisements, daily media reports about overtime and minimum wage issues, proposed government regulations, or maybe you have personal experience responding to a Department of Labor investigation or lawsuit. Wage and hour litigation is expected to continue to rise, and it is important for Florida employers to know that Florida is a hot bed for wage and hour litigation. Accordingly, we recommend that Florida employers (small, medium, large) continue to take preventative steps to avoid wage and hour complaints. Wage and hour audits can be helpful in this regard.
