Nonprofit: Wage and Hour
Wage and Hour Laws are one of the most important – and misunderstood – areas affecting California’s nonprofit organizations. LCW helps nonprofit organizations navigate the nuances of this complex and changing area of the law.
Liebert Cassidy Whitmore specializes in representing employers in wage and hour actions. Our attorneys have successfully defended employers in complex wage and hour class action and multi-plaintiff lawsuits through all stages of litigation, including jury trials and appeals. We are proud of our success at the pre-trial stage. Our attorneys have obtained pre-certification dismissals, summary judgments, and defeated class certifications. LCW has also achieved success at the trial stage.
LCW has extensive experience providing audits to employers to ensure compliance with wage and hour laws and compensation best practices. Our wage and hour audit services involve a comprehensive or tailored examination of aspects of an organization’s wage and hour practices, such as meal and rest break policies, independent contract classifications, overtime compliance, and exempt versus non-exempt classification issues. The wage and hour audit process aims to help an organization achieve compliance, by providing practical recommendations and solutions.
Thanks to our extensive expertise in wage and hour laws, our attorneys are able to recognize nuanced risks and provide practical and innovative solutions to help nonprofits with all of their wage and hour needs, including meal and rest break compliance, overtime pay rate issues, properly classifying employees for overtime exemption purposes, compliance with the ABC Test and independent contractor determinations, and managing vacation time and paid time off policies. We also routinely defend nonprofit clients against wage claims, both in court, and before the California Department of Labor Standards Enforcement (aka the Labor Commissioner) and the U.S. Department of Labor.
Our firm regularly presents training programs on compliance with wage and hour laws and has continuously done so since 1980. We provide specialized and customized trainings for clients on nuanced wage and hour issues, such as properly classifying employees, managing overtime, calculating the regular rate of pay for overtime, and meal and rest break compliance.
