To say wage-hour class actions are on the rise would be an understatement. The federal courts report a 325% increase in these types of claims since 2001. Because these claims tend to focus on a widespread practice or policy—as opposed to an individual supervisor’s discriminatory intent—they lend themselves particularly well to class treatment. These suits are typically expensive to settle and even more expensive to litigate, and the risk is usually uninsured. Although the stakes are high, wage-hour class actions are driven by relatively few payroll practices, so employers can focus their avoidance efforts, making themselves less vulnerable to attack. Join Katy Rand and Joanne Pearson who will highlight the most class-action prone wage-hour violations and share tips for protecting your company against these “bet the company” lawsuits.
