Expensive Facts & Figures...
- Failure to properly administer a garnishment of an employee’s wages can result in employer liability for a significant amount of money. ie. In one case, an employer that was 10 days late on its answer was found in default and ordered to pay a whopping $596,000 judgment!
- An applicant, a temporary employee, seasonal employee, PT or FT employee can file a discrimination claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). ie. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated a fired employee when the employer failed to accommodate her with a free on-site parking space for her disability (osteoarthritis of the knee). Feist v. Louisiana, 2013 U.S. App. LEXIS 19133 (5th Cir. Sept. 16, 2013). Employers should be aware that the EEOC has taken a strong enforcement stance against employers that fail to adhere to the ADA.
- Former employees are not automatically awarded/ nor are they always entitled to unemployment compensation. Employees can be ineligible for unemployment benefits for engaging in a number of activities, which may constitute willful misconduct under the law. ie. Having a progressive discipline policy in place, abiding by it when an employee violates work rules, AND properly documenting the mis-behavior and termination will get the employer out of paying UC benefits.
- In the last two years, wage and hour class action lawsuits have increased by 11%. Moreover, wage and hour class actions were filed 18 times more often than discrimination class actions in federal courts in 2012. ie. The amount of money that employers have had to pay to avoid these actions (according to a study cited in the October 2013 U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform showed that), in 2012, settlements of wage and hour cases reached $467 million. For the time period between 2007 to 2012, that amount was $2.7 Billion - Yes, with a "B"!
