Wage and hour lawsuits have skyrocketed over the past few years here in San Diego and throughout California. Local businesses and corporations need San Diego attorneys with decades of wage and hour litigation risk management and representation experience and expertise. How do you reduce the likelihood of a wage and hour dispute in your business? What is the proven strategy the Watkins Firm provides to efficiently resolve wage and hour disputes and lawsuits in the shortest possible time frame?
San Diego corporations and employers face stiff challenges from their own employees, as well as federal and state agencies such as the US Department of Labor, the California Labor Commissioner, and tax related agencies such as the IRS and the Employment Development Department or EDD. We counsel San Diego employers on tactics and strategies from the point of an interview (prior to hiring) through the offer letter and employment contract through corporate policies and procedures, employee handbooks and the consistent actions and documentation required to prevent wage and hour and FLSA disputes and lawsuits before they ever arrive.
San Diego wage and hour litigation risk management extends to resulting disputes, lawsuits, hearings, mediation, arbitration and ultimately a trial. We help to reduce your exposure to a variety of FLSA related violations and employee based lawsuits including but not limited to:
- Failure to pay overtime and unpaid overtime disputes
