Jo Bennett and Osazenoriuwa Ebose published an article on Law360, “Pennsylvania Justices’ Ruling Highlights Federal, State Wage Law Divide.”

The article states in part:

General Nutrition Centers Inc. reinforces the message that compliance by employers with federal wage law alone may not insulate them from violations of Pennsylvania wage law.

Jo Bennett is a partner and co-chair of Schnader’s Labor and Employment Practices Group. Osazenoriuwa Ebose is an associate in the Litigation Department.
