Fisher & Phillips LLP presents:
New Wave of Wage & Hour Litigation:
Strategies on How to Protect Your Business

Wage and hour lawsuits in Arizona have quadrupled in the last decade—from less than40 per year to more than 150 cases filed annually. More claims never reach litigation and instead are resolved through informal settlement.

For an increasing number of organizations—even those that think they are doing it right, and particularly those that think they are too small—it is just a matter of time before they are faced with a wage and hour lawsuit.

Top Five Employer Wage & Hour Mistakes
  1. Assuming that a pay plan is perfectly fine because "Everyone does it”
  2. Not paying salaried employees overtime
  3. Not requiring salaried employees to keep accurate timesheets
  4. Not including "discretionary pay” or "bonuses” into overtime pay calculations
  5. Misclassifying workers as "independent contractors”
What Will I Learn? This session will help employers escape this new wave of litigation by clarifying the following issues and more:
  • What do federal and Arizona wage & hour laws actually require (and do not require)?
