Federal and state wage and hour claims continue to soar as laid-off, discharged, demoted and dissatisfied workers seek relief. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and similar state laws are favorites of plaintiffs and their counsel. Claims can be made under these laws for misclassification of exempt and nonexempt employees, failure to pay overtime, improper wage deductions, requiring or allowing work off-the-clock, failure to provide meal and rest breaks, and failure to pay wages upon termination of employment. These wage and hour claims have increased 28 percent since 2008, and federal lawsuits have quadrupled since 2000.
