FLSA Lawsuits Continue To Rise
This month, as 2014 comes to a close, we are taking a look back at some of the most important blog topics we have covered both in case you missed them, and to help you prepare for 2015!
From April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014 a record number (8,126) of FLSA cases have been filed across the country. This represents nearly a 5 percent increase from the year before, and the seventh straight year of increases. In fact, the number of cases filed has risen 438% since the year 2000. Astonishingly enough, these numbers only capture half of the picture as they represent only the federal cases, and not any wage and hour lawsuits filed within the individual state courts. Unfortunately for business owners, the number of cases being filed is expected to continue to rise with the speculation of raising the minimum wage and tightening the regulations on white collar overtime exemptions.
