Wage & Hour Litigation and Compliance 2019

Released on: Feb. 19, 2019
Running Time: 06:13:40

Wage and hour litigation remains steady in the courts and is on the rise in arbitration after the Supreme Court’s ruling in Epic Systems confirming the validity of class waivers in arbitration agreements.  Attorneys, as well as human resources and compliance personnel must stay up to date on the latest legal developments, be informed about government agency wage and hour initiatives, and be aware of challenges still being made to arbitration agreements and the tactical response to arbitration by employers and employees.  Attorneys will learn how to identify and handle issues that arise with low wage workers, and will benefit from hearing from the past EEOC Commissioner about current initiatives to protect those workers.  Finally, end the day by testing your knowledge of which Rules of Professional Conduct may be implicated in wage and hour cases, and earn ethics credit while doing so.
