ABBEY SPANIER INVESTIGATES KPMG, LLP FOR UNFAIR EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES
Abbey Spanier is currently investigating KPMG for misclassification of its Audit Associates as "exempt" from the overtime requirements of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and state wage and hour laws.
Abbey Spanier is investigating whether KPMG's Audit Associates truly qualify for the overtime exemption under state and federal labor laws. Federal law requires overtime pay at a rate of not less than one and one-half times the employee's regular rate of pay for each hour worked in excess of 40 hours in a given workweek. If Abbey Spanier's investigation reveals that Audit Associates do not qualify for an "exempt" classification, these employees may be entitled to unpaid overtime, liquidated damages and other benefits under the FLSA and state wage and hour laws.
Abbey Spanier has been representing employees in class actions and collective actions in federal and state courts throughout the United States for over a decade.
