Columbus Legal Hot Topics

Employer suits alleging wage and hour violations are on the rise and making headlines. Join us for lessons from a Wage and Hour Investigator and an Employment Defense Attorney.

In August 2014, LinkedIn agreed to pay $3,346,195 in overtime back wages and $2,509,646 in liquidated damages to 359 former and current employees working at company branches in California, Illinois, Nebraska and New York. An investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division ("DOL") found that LinkedIn violated the overtime and record-keeping provisions of the Fair Standards Act ("FLSA") when it failed to compensate employees for overtime that was worked but was not reported by employees.

From the controversial rulings for the NLRB to the laser-focused scrutiny of the DOL, OFCCP and EEOC, employers are struggling to stay current while these boiler rooms of change churn out policy-changing regulations, decisions and investigations.
