Q: What’s happening in wage and hour law?
• Cities, counties and states establishing minimum wages rules different from the federal minimum wage create potential liability for employers.
• As employers continue to misclassify employees and improperly record and pay wages, the risk of an overtime lawsuit is a constant.
• With the continuing expansion of technology and remote work, employees are working outside of traditional business hours and “off the clock” lawsuits are on the rise.
