We counsel clients about state and federal wage and hour issues, perform wage and hour compliance reviews and audits, and defend litigation and government agency investigations. Our expertise includes the defense of collective and class actions, wage payment and collection claims, and lawsuits alleging the failure to pay overtime. We also advise businesses on how to avoid being sued, including:
- Analyzing and classifying employees as exempt or non-exempt under federal and state law;
- Identifying workers as independent contractors or employees;
- Confirming proper remuneration for exempt and non-exempt employees; and
- Devising incentive compensation plans compliant with state wage payment and collection laws.
