Did you know overtime cases comprise 80% of FLSA lawsuits?

In fact, improper exempt employee classification and non-compliance generate some of the largest back pay awards and fines ever recorded. In 2016, the top 5 FLSA lawsuits, included:

  1. $240MM  - FedEx for unpaid overtime
  2. $62.2MM – Walmart and Sam’s Club for off-the-clock work, missed meal and rest breaks, and unpaid overtime
  3. $27MM – Los Angeles Children’s Hospital for wages shorted, denied breaks, unpaid overtime
  4. $14MM – Bank of America for unpaid overtime
  5. $13.5MM – Excel Direct for denial of breaks, unpaid overtime, minimum wage violations

With better processes and procedures, these lawsuits could have been avoided – along with countless hours and millions of dollars in back wages, attorney’s fees, and penalties.
