Jones Day

New York, NY, USA


Wendy Butler has over 20 years of experience defending employment-related litigation and advising employers on legal compliance. She focuses on class action litigation under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state wage/hour laws. In these high exposure and often high profile cases, she has had repeated success defeating class and/or collective action certification and obtaining favorable decisions on the merits. She also has extensive experience defending individual and multiplaintiff cases under the ADA, ADEA, FMLA, Title VII, ERISA, and numerous state laws. Her practice includes counseling on a variety of employment issues, including Human Resources policies, litigation avoidance, employment agreements, restrictive covenants, reductions in force, wage hour audits and compliance, and internal investigations.

Wendy has been involved with the defense of complex wage and hour cases dating back over 15 years, around the time courts first began to see a significant uptick in these types of filings. She has been at the forefront of developing litigation strategies to defeat these claims, and also regularly advises clients on compliance initiatives that reduce exposure to such claims.

Wendy has written and spoken on a variety of topics, including wage and hour laws, whistleblower and discrimination litigation, and the defense and settlement of class actions. She is a member of the New York State Bar Association Labor & Employment Section, where she has served on the Wage and Hour Committee.
