Chelsea Dwyer Petersen Quoted in The Wall Street Journal—Companies Use Overtime to Solve Worker Shortages. That May Cost Them More Workers

Chelsea Dwyer Petersen was quoted in "Companies Use Overtime to Solve Worker Shortages. That May Cost Them More Workers" an article in The Wall Street Journal*, regarding the nation's current labor shortage and overtime demands.

Companies that can't fill their many openings are relying on existing workers to stay late, come in early and pick up extra shifts to keep operations running. That's making the nation's current labor shortage even more challenging to solve.

Chelsea Dwyer Petersen, a partner focusing on employment litigation at management-side law, said there is no groundswell of litigation yet, but she expects to see more cases or complaints in 2022 as the pandemic continues.
