Employment Class Actions & FLSA Litigation
The number of employment-related litigation filings has steadily increased in recent years and wage and hour disputes and lawsuits are no exception. Claims brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and similar state wage and hour statutes are one of the most common and significant challenges facing employers today. Our Employment Litigation professionals provide comprehensive advice to clients on matters ranging from regulatory compliance to complex litigation defense strategies to effectively negotiating settlements. We have valuable knowledge and understanding of wage and hour laws and regulations, as well as an understanding and appreciation for the impact that employment-related litigation can have on our clients.
Our Employment Litigation attorneys have defended employers against individual actions, class actions, collective actions and “hybrid” actions brought under both federal and state wage and hour statues. We have experience in litigating cases involving claims of off-the-clock work (i.e. pre-shift and post-shift time and meal breaks), overtime pay, minimum wage, donning and doffing and misclassification. We have successfully defeated actions in the early pleadings stage, and have also successfully opposed attempts to certify class and/or collective actions.Practitioners
