Expert Witness Response E-007568
I have decades of experience as a forensic economist. I can analyze the damages per plaintiff across various pay periods according to the alleged instances of noncompliance with the law. Additionally, I am a CPA. I previously worked at the U.S. Department of Labor in the Wage and Hour Division. I now currently compute back wages owed by companies who failed to abide by the FLSA.
