Main Volume Information

Unlike other books covering this area of the law, Bloomberg BNA’s Wage and Hour Laws: A State-by-State Survey, Second Edition goes beyond recitation of each state’s statutory law and provides detailed analyses of state regulations, wage orders, and court cases interpreting and applying the laws. Plus, this in-depth survey addresses special litigation issues particular to each state, including questions on choice of forum, availability of class actions, and more. This treatise covers all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, jurisdiction by jurisdiction, and addresses such state wage and hour law issues as minimum wage and overtime; timing, place, and manner of payment to employees; mandatory payments in addition to overtime; prohibitions on hours worked and mandatory leave; enforcement and remedies; special litigation issues; common law wage and hour actions (types of actions, defenses, and damages); attorneys’ fees litigation; liens specific to unpaid wages; and defenses unique to state wage and hour litigation.

Wage and Hour Laws: A State-by-State Survey, Second Edition provides up-to-date analyses in an easy-to-find format, saving hours of research and enabling practitioners to quickly find the information they need and compare laws in different states.
Supplement Information
The 2013 Cumulative Supplement addresses new state wage and hour law developments, including:
  • A California Court of Appeals holding that the minimum wage attaches to and must be paid for each separate hour of work including time that piece rate workers are waiting and performing non-piece rate tasks at their employer’s direction
  • A federal court holding that the fluctuating workweek method of computing overtime is not allowed under the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act
  • In Connecticut, an agreement that an employee’s right to a commission ceases upon termination is held to be void as against public policy
  • A federal court holding that the Indiana Wage Payment laws regarding timely payment of wages apply to federal employees
  • The imposing of significant statutory obligations in Massachusetts specific to temporary staffing companies, including the requirement that staffing companies reimburse employees if they are sent to a worksite where no work is available
