Wage and Hour
The attorneys at Gordon Thomas Honeywell provide advice to employers on compliance with a wide variety of issues under federal and state wage and hour laws. These issues include, for example, understanding when an employee may be paid on a salaried-exempt, rather than hourly rate basis; how to properly compute overtime compensation when an hourly employee receives other forms of compensation, such as commissions and bonuses; compliance with meal and rest period requirements: and understanding the rules regarding payroll deductions. It is critical that employers comply with federal and state wage and hour law requirements because improper wage and hour practices may result in costly litigation, including class actions. Our attorneys are frequently called up to provide advice on these types of wage and hour issues and to provide a strong defense in wage and hour lawsuits and class action litigation when such claims arise.
