Scott P. Tift

A significant part of Scott’s practice is devoted to representing individuals in legal actions seeking to enforce civil rights. Scott also handles wage and hour collective action litigation on behalf of employees who are underpaid. These cases include claims by workers who are required to perform unpaid work off the clock as well as workers who are misclassified as salaried employees. He has handled significant litigation in this area, recovering millions of dollars of unpaid wages for workers including poultry processing workers, call center workers, and nursing home workers.

 

Prior to practicing law, Scott worked on President Bill Clinton’s scheduling and advance staff, where he assisted in the coordination of President Clinton’s schedule and staffed President Clinton at events around the country and abroad.
