In-House Interrogatory

Asked: Our weekly question to the In-House community

This year will be all about discrimination and wage-and-hour lawsuits, according to general counsels at companies in the U.S. and Britain.

A survey by Fulbright & Jaworski found 35 percent of in-house attorneys expected the biggest bump in their workload to come from discrimination disputes. Around 29 percent thought wage-and-hour disputes would be the largest increase at their companies.

So here’s our question for you:

Do you think your company will see an increase in discrimination and wage-and-hour claims? Or will workplace overload come from a different kind of lawsuit?
