2015 FLSA Litigation: On the Rise

During the last 15 years, wage and hour lawsuits filed in federal court have risen over 450%. According to the Judicial Resource Center, 8,781 Fair Labor Standards Act lawsuits were filed in 2015, which is a 7.6 percent increase from 2014. This year has seen new federal labor proposed regulations, the fight for higher minimum wage, an increased scrutiny on independent contractor classification and joint employer status. Experts believe these events, changes and public awareness have contributed to the rising onslaught of wage and hour suits. [1]
