Companies can run into major problems if they fail to pay their employees for all compensable work time. The complexity of the FLSA’s rules and different state requirements—like strict California meal break laws—can cause confusion among employers as to whether certain time counts as compensable work hours. As a result, employers are frequently defending against costly wage and hour lawsuits.
With big verdicts, record settlements, increasing worker awareness, and widespread public attention to how employees are paid, it’s no surprise that the number of wage and hour lawsuits is increasing. Given these factors, employers should tread carefully when determining payment for employees.
