DOL program may spur suits
Labor, Employment and Benefits Partner Phil Schreiber was quoted in a Business Insurance article titled "DOL program may spur suits."
The article reports that observers say the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has been demonstrating a strong interest in wage-and-hour laws. Attorneys point to the DOL wage and hour division's Bridge to Justice program, a collaborative effort with the American Bar Association that launched in December and refers workers to ABA-approved attorneys. “I think you're going to see a significant increase in lawsuits in this area” as a result of this referral program, Mr. Schreiber said.
