Avoiding and Preventing FLSA Collective Actions And State Wage Class Actions

Don't let wage and hour class and collective actions become a costly issue for your company.

Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) collective actions represented the largest category of class action filings in U.S. District Courts in the last fiscal year. Wage and hour actions permeate virtually all industries resulting in huge jury verdicts and settlements. This topic will teach you how to avoid these disasters through effective preventive action, including attorney-client privileged audits of employee classification and off-the-clock work issues; how to identify and correct these problems before litigation; how to identify and address exempt to nonexempt conversions and back pay issues; and how to do the tough liability and damages analysis that can lead to cost-effective settlements with government or private plaintiffs when litigation is threatened. This topic is critical for employers looking to make sure their house is in order before getting into costly litigation.
