Wage and hour class actions were the most prolific employment litigation claims filed in both federal and state courts in 206 and the trend continues for 2007. These actions are fuelled by plaintiff lawyers, attreacted by the attoryney fees provisions of wage and hour statutes, by plaintiffs who hear about these cases on the Internet and through elaborate email schemes, and by corpoerations who have failed to monitor their wage and hour practices for compliance with federal and state laws.
