Solved mystery of the week.
Many employment defense attorneys agree that wage-and-hour cases have taken up more and more of their time in recent years. Now, thanks to a report published by Seyfarth Shaw LLP on Monday, there is hard evidence to back up this speculation.
I do not have to speculate about an increase in wage-and-hour cases. It is real, and it is caused by an increasing effort on the part of employers to deprive more and more employees of the pay mandated by the law. Not a complicated explanation – violation of the law.
