WAGE AND HOUR
There is no type of wage and hour lawsuit that our Labor and Employment Group has not defended. We have seen wage and hour disputes recently explode in numbers, and are adept on these matters. We regularly assist clients to develop legally compliant payroll practices and procedures. Our attorneys are also experienced in dealing with wage and hour investigations by federal and state Departments of Labor.
The Liebler, Gonzalez & Portuondo Labor and Employment Group has defended a variety of wage and hour lawsuits, with issues including:
- Unpaid overtime
- Improper deductions from paychecks
- Tip credits
- The use of pay cards to compensate employees
- The fluctuating work week
Some say that wage and hour disputes are now the most prevalent employment lawsuits in the country. Florida has become the go-to state for federal wage and hour lawsuits, with the United State District Court in and for the Southern District of Florida ranked No. 1 for the most FLSA lawsuits in the country.
In addition to defending clients in wage and hour lawsuits, we help clients to develop payroll practices and procedures, including:
- Training internal wage and hour compliance teams
- Conducting wage and hour training
- Conducting cost-effective wage and hour audits
This proactive work helps us identify compliance issues and allows employers to handle these issues in advance of a lawsuit.
