Legislative Update -

Wage and Hour Litigation

Wage and hour litigation is one of the most active categories in class action lawsuits.

As measured by the top ten largest case resolutions, settlement resolution amounts are down from 2016 but still the highest compared to prior years. The past 2 years combined to a value of $1.2 billion in settlements, representing a significant growth compared to the prior 4 years and making it the No. 1 area of exposure for corporations heading into 2018.*

Furthermore, in January the U.S. Department of Labor published increases in the civil money penalties it can impose for certain violations of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The new levels are approximately 2% higher than those established last year.

A few weeks ago the KY Labor Cabinet announced $341,230 was recouped in wage violations and returned to Kentucky workers. The primary areas were unpaid overtime, withheld final paychecks and illegal deductions.**

So, employers should be diligent to conduct a regular check-up of their FLSA compliance given the litigation activity in this area is high and the cost of non-compliance is continuing to rise.
