Alleged violations of wage and hour laws have spurred a new wave of employment class action suits.  These can potentially result in millions of dollars of recoverable damages and attorneys’ fees — in addition to the substantial amount of legal fees and administrative costs incurred by employers in defending these actions. The U.S. Department of Labor has also become increasingly vigilant in their investigation and enforcement of federal wage and hour laws.
