May 21: Web - The Wage & Hour Avalanche: Avoiding the Crush of Class Actions & Investigations

Wage and hour litigation based on alleged violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state labor laws continues to grow exponentially. In fact, wage and hour claims are the leading segment of workplace litigation, jumping 423% over the last two decades and quadrupling during the last 10 years. More than 7,000 lawsuits are filed under the Fair Labor Standards Act each year, many of them as class or collective actions that often come with the risk of multiple damages. In addition, the U.S. Department of Labor has stepped up its enforcement activities. Because wage and hour claims continue to pose one of the greatest risks for employers, we invite you to join our panel of experts for a webinar during which they will discuss:
  • The impact of recent court decisions interpreting the Fair Labor Standards Act
  • Litigation regarding the use of independent contractors rather than employees
  • Legal risks associated with the use of unpaid interns
  • Certifying wage and hour class actions after Dukes and Comcast
  • Responding to a governmental audit of your compliance with the FLSA
