In recent years, however, several other states and localities have gone farther, enacting expansive pay transparency laws imposing obligations on employers to share pay data, a broader trend requiring pay scale disclosures in job postings, which may impact your compensation practices, especially if the organization utilizes remote workers. This session will explore this trend and how your organization could be affected.
Michael S. McIntosh has represented clients in connection with a wide variety of labor and employment issues – from Railway Labor Act litigation, to employee handbook and policy preparation, to general employment counseling. However, his practice primarily focuses on complex wage and hour litigation in federal and state courts. He regularly represents clients in collective, class, and hybrid actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage and hour laws, as well as representative actions brought by the U.S. Department of Labor. These include actions involving allegations of off-the-clock work, compensable preliminary and postliminary activities, and employee misclassification.
Michael also helps employers audit their wage and hour practices.
