Wage and hour class action litigation continues to outpace all other types of workplace class actions facing today’s employers. Increasingly, sophisticated plaintiffs’ lawyers are using creative means to launch such cases before court ordered invitations can be mailed to employees. However, a number of recent court decisions, including the D.R. Horton case, can be used to protect employers from undue exposure. This briefing will explore recent trends in wage and hour class action litigation and effective strategies, including arbitration agreements, available to employers to reduce or eliminate their wage and hour class action exposure.

In addition, this seminar will provide a checklist of areas which should be included in every company’s wage and hour compliance audit, including:

  • Proper classification of exempt employees
  • Preventing off the clock work
  • Avoiding improper deductions from salaried employees
  • Compliance with the Texas Payday Act
  • Important employee handbook policies governing payroll and overtime
