Steely Comments on Thriving Labor and Employment Law Practice in Texas

11 October 2018 Dallas Business Journal News
Partner Rachel Powitzky Steely was quoted in a Dallas Business Journal article, “Wage & Hour Litigation Practice Remains Strong in Texas,” about a surge in new lawsuits filed in the Texas federal courts under the Fair Labor Standards Act during the first half of 2018.

“It doesn’t look like there’s any slowing down for a while,” she said.

Steely also said a Supreme Court ruling earlier this year holding that arbitration agreements that include class action waivers are lawful will likely lead to future increases in FLSA litigation. “You see a lot of cases being filed but they may be broken up…into additional filings or additional arbitrations,” she said. “It will be interesting to see the effect of that.”
