In a climate of increasingly complex workplace regulations, employers need strategies that result in productive and cost-effective business outcomes. Fox Rothschild attorneys offer timely, creative and aggressive advice and solutions that resolve – and even prevent – disputes and costly litigation involving wage and hour suits. We also provide counsel concerning day-to-day as well as big picture strategic issues and stress preventive action through training sessions and other outlets.

Our employment attorneys have represented hundreds of clients before the federal and various state Departments of Labor as well as in state and federal courts on such issues as employee classification, working time issues and independent contractor controversies, including drafting/review of independent contractor agreements. We have successfully defended clients in class actions and have conducted internal audits of client compensation/payroll practices to ascertain compliance with wage-hour law, offering appropriate recommendations where necessary.

We have also defended a number of individual plaintiff and class overtime actions brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act and various state laws, including minimum wage and overtime requirements, Equal Pay Act problems, child labor issues and representation before the Wage and Hour Division.
