Employment Law This Week (December 7, 2015) has released bonus footage of its interview with Jeffrey Ruzal, a Senior Counsel at Epstein Becker Green.

As Mr. Ruzal discusses, Fair Labor Standards Act lawsuits hit a record high in 2015. The number of federal wage-and-hour suits rose almost 8% this year. There are many reasons for the increase, including more worker-friendly rules and increased publicity around minimum wage and overtime issues. Some point to the difficulties of applying an outdated law to our modern-day economy.
