Wage and Hour Claims


Wage and Hour Claims — an assertion by an employee-plaintiff that his or her employer has failed to pay overtime wages owed to the employee. Within the past several years, a number of high-profile, high-dollar wage and hour claims have been filed on a class action basis, a fact that has vastly increased the dollar amount payable under such lawsuits. Given the magnitude of this exposure, most employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) policies specifically exclude coverage for wage and hour claims.
