Our EMPLOYMENT attorneys are leaders in developing compensation strategies for complying with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and the multiple state wage-hour-overtime laws. We conduct compliance audits, analyze exempt status of salaried employees, advise on the proper classification of independent contractors, and structure overtime compensation systems and job descriptions in order to ensure compliance with complex wage-hour regulations. Our attorneys always implement this work in a manner that minimizes the cost of compliance. In addition, we have successfully defended employers in federal and state court wage/hour lawsuits and have represented employers in U.S. Department of Labor investigations and enforcement actions.
