Our attorneys are leaders in the state in the defense of wage-hour collective actions. As this litigation has increased, we have effectively represented a number of our clients in such actions in federal and state courts in Arkansas. Our attorneys have also been responsible for the drafting of recent Arkansas legislation, which has changed state minimum wage/overtime laws to be more consistent with federal laws, thus making compliance more efficient.
Focused on Services
With our knowledge of the basis for wage and hour lawsuits and investigations, we can help you audit your pay practices to make sure that you have properly classified employees as exempt or non-exempt or as employees versus independent contractors, help you ensure that employees are not working “off the clock,” and can advise on all other compliance issues that are the focus of attorneys filing wage and hour collective actions.
We can help multi-state employers minimize class action litigation by drafting arbitration agreements with class action waivers.
Focused on our Team
Our lawyers have extensive experience in handling wage hour investigations with the United States Department of Labor and Arkansas Department of Labor as well as litigating wage and hour claims in federal and state court. Our firm has an unparalleled record in negotiating favorable settlements or withdrawals of DOL investigations. We also obtained one of the few recorded awards of attorney’s fees against the U.S. Department of Labor on behalf of one of our clients.
