For generations, plaintiffs' lawyers have relied on federal law and the federal judiciary as the primary guardians against workplace injustice. But is such reliance misplaced in 21st Century America? This program describes how lawyers are turning to state courts and exploiting state laws to expand wage and hour rights beyond the confines of the FLSA. The program also addresses how state legislatures and agencies are poised to become the new battleground in the fight for workplace justice.

Mr. Winebrake and his law firm represent workers in litigation seeking unpaid wages and overtime under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and similar state laws. The firm works on a pure contingency basis and never represents employers. Since the firm’s founding in 2007, Mr. Winebrake and his firm (often working with co-counsel) has successfully resolved over 80 class/collective actions and over 200 of individual actions. These cases have resulted in the recovery of over $150 million for workers and their families. Mr. Winebrake and his firm are on the cutting-edge of expanding the parameters of the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act so that – in many areas – it provides Pennsylvania workers with wage and overtime rights that are more expansive than the rights available under the federal FLSA.
