State Law Wage & Hour Claims
Outten & Golden was one of the very first law firms to successfully prosecute a federal and state wage and hour class action in one lawsuit, setting legal precedent in this field over a decade ago. Since then, Outten & Golden has become the preeminent wage and hour class action firm, representing thousands of workers to recover unpaid wages under both state and federal law.
While federal law sets the “floor” for minimum workplace protections, most states have their own statutes to regulate wages and hours beyond what the federal law provides. Because workers in some states can recover back wages for more years under state law than under federal law, successfully prosecuting class actions under both sets of laws serves workers best, and Outten & Golden is the firm with the most experience bringing these cases.
