Compensation litigation may involve disputes regarding base salary, short-term incentives, long-term incentives, employee benefits and prerequisites. When employers get themselves in trouble regarding these compensation issues, violations of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act are common and may result in legal action. A compensation expert witness can help. Attorneys representing clients with cases concerning base compensation, executive compensation, position analysis and evaluation, variable and incentive compensation, performance management, and sales compensation will benefit from the assistance of an expert witness. Employers facing lawsuits involving commissions and overtime pay will also profit from the reports and expert witness testimony a compensation expert witness can provide.
