When you’ve been hit with a wage and hour class action lawsuit, carefully managing internal and external communications is critical.
Attorney Amy Ramsey recommends that you first consider the press. If this is a case that may garner media attention, contact your public relations team and, in conjunction with counsel, craft a message that you want to send regarding the claims and litigation.
Employee communications, such as information about conducting an investigation or internal talking points to share with employees, are also important to prepare with counsel.
Finally, if you have EPLI coverage, you’ll want to immediately communicate with your carrier to determine whether the claims within the litigation are covered.
