This CLE webinar will advise employment counsel on litigating wage and hour claims under the new state labor regulations. The panel will discuss how changes to minimum wages, calculation of overtime, mandatory paid leave, and break requirements at the state level will affect how claims are resolved, particularly for multistate employers, and best practices for establishing policies to mitigate liability for future claims.


The number of wage and hour lawsuits and U.S. Department of Labor investigations has steadily increased over the past few years. The Biden administration's anticipated proposed legislative and regulatory changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act and numerous state law changes make handling the current workforce difficult. The cost of defending class, collective, or multi-plaintiff wage and hour lawsuits at both the state and federal levels can be significant, both monetarily and to the disruption of operations.

Employment counsel must consider how overlapping state laws related to minimum wage and overtime are handled, particularly with remote work operating in multiple states. Additionally, counsel should be aware of the break requirements and paid leave policies that may result in significant litigation.

Listen as our expert panel discusses recent wage and hour cases, the impact of new state legislation on the operation of multistate businesses, and best practices when litigating these employment claims.
