Employers are facing an increasing onslaught of wage and hour lawsuits with demands that can stretch into the millions of dollars for unpaid overtime.
Because many of these actions are brought as class action suits, the result can be devastating. Whether an organization employs 5 or 5000+ employees, it is paramount that wage, hour and overtime liability is prevented before a major problem can ensue.
