Over the last decade, labor litigation has increased exponentially. As more workers become aware of their rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and similar federal and state statutes, and the plaintiff’s bar plays an active role in bringing collective actions under such laws, companies face higher scrutiny than ever for their policies, procedures, and practices. Such litigation can be especially costly for employers, both financially and in terms of reputational risk. All of these factors enhance the value of engaging an experienced labor mediator to help resolve disputes.
