In 2014, there were hundreds of Wage and Hour class actions filed against Florida businesses. In 2017, that number skyrocketed to thousands. In the State of Florida, the average amount of money employers have to spend to defend a Wage and Hour lawsuit is approximately $100,000 and often goes way higher. This amount does not include damages or settlement payments to the plaintiffs.

Additionally, my services for employers include the protection of businesses from being hit with Wage and Hour lawsuits in the first place.
Your Business vs. Employment Class Actions
An overwhelmingly high percentage of all employment cases filed in the State of Florida are class actions. In 2017, there were thousands of employment class actions filed against Florida businesses, which means there were at least 5 of them filed each day. When disputes of this kind arise, settlements of seven and even eight figures are very common for large companies, while smaller businesses generally dish out six-figure settlements to extract themselves from these Wage and Hour lawsuits. Throughout the process, these companies spend tens of thousands of dollars to defend themselves from their employees.If your business has been attacked by an employment class action, it is imperative to seek the help of a skilled and experienced Florida Employment Lawyer to help you plan your defense strategy and establish your position properly.
