A recent study by the law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski indicated that class actions and specifically wage and hour class actions have been on the rise. What the study did indicate is that in light of the Supreme Court's pending case of Brinker v. Superior Court, meal break cases have been on the decline. As such it appears that claims for overtime, unreimbursed expenses and other labor violations are on the rise. It is also interesting to see that federal claims under the Fair labor Standards Act are becoming more prevalent outside of California. Such claims typically involve misclassification, tip pooling problems or donning and doffing issues in a manufacturing setting. Kingsley & Kingsley has expanded its practice into many of these areas and remains committed to prosecuting these claims in all industries. Currently we are litigating several cases against home builders, the pharmaceutical industry as well as retail and restaurant claims.
