Wage and hour class actions against California businesses are increasing at an alarming rate, with an over 300% increase in the number of cases filed since 2014. These cases typically are not covered by most insurance policies (and even if they are, the premiums and deductibles are exorbitant). Rather than hoping for the best and spending tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees if your business gets sued, what if there was a way to help prevent an employment lawsuit in the first place, at a fraction of the cost of hiring a law firm?
There is. In 2015, the lawyers of Medina McKelvey formed California Compliance Solutions (CCS), a first-of-its kind wage and hour product that comprehensively trains and certifies your managers and employees in employment law issues to help deter and prevent plaintiffs’ lawyers from targeting and suing your business.
