HR Works COVID-19 Update: Wage and Hour Lawsuits on the Rise

Last time on HR Works COVID-19 Update, we began to explore the many new types of wage and hour lawsuits that might be coming your way in light of the pandemic. This week, we’ll hear from a lawyer that specializes in these types of cases to discuss where she is seeing new lawsuits, what they look like, and what might happen going forward.

We are pleased to have back on the show Maggie Spell, Partner at the New Orleans location of Jones Walker with us. In this episode, she helps us unpack some of the most common pandemic-induced wage and hour violations.

Maggie focuses her practice on cases brought under federal, state, and local employment laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. She regularly offers wage and hour compliance advice and has represented employers in numerous Fair Labor Standards Act collective actions and state-law wage and hour class actions.
