In 2013, over 7,500 separate lawsuits were brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act. FLSA litigation has exploded in recent years, and no business is 100% immune from risks. As more employees become aware of their rights, and more attorneys look for new ways to bring lawsuits, FLSA litigation is expected to rise exponentially.
From a business standpoint, because a single plaintiff can bring a group action, businesses face a dramatically larger risk of loss in this type of litigation than in other employment-related litigation. Further, because the Department of Labor ceased issuing opinion letters to employers wanting to find out whether they pay their employees correctly. Businesses are left with little choice but to hire counsel to advise them on their risks, or face the potential of disastrous loss.
