New Cause for Concern: State Overtime Compliance Litigation

Litigation is on the rise for state overtime compliance.

CCH Human Resources Management reports that claims of state overtime violations are increasing due to the attention that the new white-collar regulations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) received. The change caused many plaintiff’s attorneys to focus their efforts on the differences between the federal and state requirements. Steven S. Greene, managing member of the law firm of Helms & Greene, LLC, while speaking at WorldatWork’s 2007 Conference and Exposition, stated that attorneys are exploiting the material differences between the federal and state standards, causing settlements and verdicts to soar.
