"FLSA and Employment Practices Liability Issues," Claims Magazine
In its December 2014 issue, Claims magazine featured Raanon Gal’s article, “FLSA and Employment Practices Liability Issues.” The article takes a look back on 2014 and forward to 2015 in regards to the increasing trend of wage and hour employment claims on Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) coverage. Mr. Gal discusses why companies may be driven to purchase EPLI policies that cover wage and hour claims, new federal regulations on the horizon that will negatively affect companies and what insurers can do to lower risk. In addition, Mr. Gal takes a look at the common wage and hour mistakes and trends companies continue to face, including misclassifying exempt employees, increasing off-the-clock cases, and protecting against collective action wage and hour cases.
