Wage and hour lawsuits generally comprise claims from previous- and sometimes even current- employees claiming they were not paid all of their overtime, sick leave, paid time off (PTO) or vacation hours. Many times, this former or current employee will claim that they were improperly classified as an “exempt” employee, when they should have been “non-exempt” and thus should have received overtime pay. These claims can quickly add up and potentially incur large penalties. Wage and hour lawsuits often surprise employers, particularly because frequently the lawsuit is filed after the employee has left employment.
