Collective claims challenging the classification of employees as exempt from overtime pay under FLSA increased by 77% in recent years. Some FLSA lawsuits have resulted in multimillion dollar verdicts. State lawsuits are also on the rise, as state laws are often even more employee-friendly.

The U.S. Department of Labor reports that approximately 70% of employers are out of compliance with the FLSA. To avoid potential claims, it is critical that counsel advise employers to reexamine and, where necessary, adjust their worker classification practices.
