Our attorneys have extensive experience in counseling clients in all aspects of federal and state wage and hour laws, with a focus on developing strategies and policies that prevent costly wage and hour litigation. If litigation occurs, we aggressively defend both individual claims and class actions through the design of a focused, well-planned defense to resolve a case swiftly and minimize the costs of litigation.
We conduct comprehensive wage and hour audits specific to our clients’ needs and business goals by evaluating wage and hour policies and practices, reviewing exempt and non-exempt job classifications, and assessing timekeeping and pay practices and policies. We are equally well-versed in litigating state-based wage and hour class actions and federal FLSA opt-in actions.
The labor group has successfully defended numerous claims in federal and state courts, including claims for misclassification of employees, unpaid meal breaks, pre- and post-shift off-the-clock work, on-call time, donning and doffing, improper tip credit practices, and improper calculation of overtime wages, bonuses and commissions.
