Weathering the Storm of Wage/Hour Class and Collective Actions

The health care industry has, for the most part, successfully weathered the prior storm of wage/hour class and collective actions stemming from missed meal periods and “auto deduct” pay practices. But we are by no means in the clear.
More recently, there has been an exponential rise in wage/hour class and collective action litigation based on timekeeping and pay practices—specifically, rounding practices—related to the beginning and ending of the work day.
It is important for health care leadership to understand how unintentional timekeeping and pay practice mistakes quickly create multi-million dollar exposure for the organization. Of equal significance is taking a proactive approach that will prepare for, mitigate and defend against those risks.
After defending several multi-million dollar wage/hour class and collective actions in federal court, Hall Render attorneys helped develop a web-based tool designed to help improve compliance in several “high risk” areas. L.Y.R.I.C. (Lower Your Risk and Improve Confidence) helps identify exposure on “high risk” claims (i.e., time clock rounding practices, mid-shift breaks, smoke breaks, and smoke-free campus rules) and provides an easy way to connect with a Hall Render attorney to address any issues that come to light. While the tool does not guarantee 100% compliance with all wage/hour laws, upon completion of the 10-15 minute (free) web-based assessment, you’ll immediately be provided with a risk assessment profile, tailored to your organization.
