According to The Hartford and the Federal Judicial Center, Wage and Hour claims are up nearly 5 percent from 2013. 

 

In wage and Hour claims, allegations by current and/or former employees typically involve unpaid overtime, failure to provide meals or rest breaks, and off the clock work.  In 2013 the Department of Labor recovered nearly $250,000,000 in back wages.

 

All business with employees need to consider Employment Practices Liability (EPL) coverage to help protect their bottom line.  Wage & Hour coverage is hard to get in some states, especially California, but you should at least try to get it.  Please follow the link to the article for more information on Wage & Hour claims.
