Litigating Wage-and-Hour Class Actions: Practical Tips and Secrets Revealed from Plaintiffs & Defense Counsel
Wage-and-hour class actions are showing no signs of slowing down in California-in fact, anything but! Anyone involved in litigating wage-and-hour class actions needs to be well versed in the latest trends, strategies, and decisions. This Program will explore them in a clear and informative format.

Topics that will be discussed include:

*Latest developments in misclassification, rest break and meal period, rounding, and "off-the-clock" claims
*Key strategies for plaintiffs to obtain class certification and how defendants can counter them
* Settlement strategies-when is the best time to settle and what is the best way to utilize data to position for settlement?
*The impact of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Tyson Foods and using "representative evidence" in class/collective actions
*The use of experts in wage-and-hour class actions and when to engage them
