Managing Partner Sarah Jane Hunt recently presented at the 2023 Annual Labor & Employment Law Symposium for the Missouri Bar Association with Raymond Dake, of Siro Smith Dickinson PC.
Ms. Hunt’s presentation focused on updates to state and federal wage and hour laws as part of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) for Missouri Bar Association members.
“The enforcement of wage and hour laws is crucial to ensure workers are treated fairly and receive the compensation they deserve. Wage theft is a serious problem that affects many workers, particularly those who are already struggling to make ends meet. According to the Economic Policy Institute, the total cost of wage theft in the U.S. could be as much as $50 billion a year. This is a staggering figure, and it highlights the urgent need for stronger enforcement of wage and hour laws to protect workers from exploitation. In addition to the DOL, private attorneys can play a critical role in helping workers recover their earned compensation and holding employers accountable for their actions.” – Sarah Jane Hunt
