One Minute of Overtime

Welcome to One Minute of Overtime, where I will share insights on Labor and Employment Law topics, mostly related to minimum wage and overtime compliance issues. These areas are critical for all employers and failure to comply exposes employers to liquidated damages and attorney's fees. It is important to know that wage and hour claims can easily be pursued on behalf of a class of current and former employees.

Compliance in this area of law is nuanced and technical, so it is critical for employers to audit and adjust their practices to remain compliant, so stop by to stay up-to-date and in-the-know.
