Trucking Litigation

Trucking Litigation

Correct employee classification is essential. Avoid lawsuits and learn how to navigate the complex rules of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Employees and their counsel continue to pursue individual and class action overtime claims based on the alleged misclassification of exempt workers at a fever pitch. Thousands of lawsuits asserting violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act or parallel state laws are filed each year, and the costs of defending these matters and the damages claimed and paid, whether through trial or settlement, are staggering. These cases frequently involve individual and class action claims that employers have misclassified employees eligible for overtime as exempt in an effort to cheat them out of their rightful pay. This topic will help you understand the overtime exemptions available under the law, the nature of the claims asserted by plaintiffs, and the newest areas of focus and arguments advanced by plaintiffs’ counsel. It will also explain what steps you can take to assure proper classifications and to minimize the likelihood and success of these misclassification claims.
