California overtime suits



They're a great big industry for the plaintiff's bar, and that's unlikely to change no matter how the overtime controversy turns out at the federal government level, since California law is markedly more hostile to employers. Here are three recent Law.com articles on a settlement involving Farmers Insurance claims adjusters that could top $200 million, a green light for class certification in lots of other cases, and an effort by plaintiff's lawyers to organize wage-and-hour suits on behalf of stockbrokers in the state even though, as one of the lawyers puts it, they "earn so much money that nobody even thinks of them being entitled to overtime."
