6 CLE hours, including 1 Ethics hour

Wage and hour litigation remains steady in the courts, and is on the rise in arbitration.  Attorneys, as well as human resources and compliance personnel must keep up to date on the latest legal developments, be informed about DOL initiatives and regulations, have knowledge of the nuances of paying employees correctly, and understand the pros and cons of arbitration agreements and class action waivers.  For litigators, it is essential to understand and analyze the ethical issues and technological challenges that arise in discovery when prosecuting or defending a class or collective actions, and to have knowledge of the intricacies of when and how to settle these actions.

 This full day program brings together nationally recognized employer and employee advocates, prominent in-house counsel, neutrals and the Solicitor of Labor from the U.S. Department of Labor, who will provide timely updates and share their perspectives, insights and experiences.

What You Will Learn

  • Hear directly from the United States Department of Labor’s chief legal officer, as the Solicitor of Labor provides an update on DOL’s current enforcement priorities and latest initiatives
  • Learn about the DOL’s new/proposed white collar regulations and the effects on employers and practitioners
  • Understand the nuances and pitfalls in wage and hour compliance
  • Analyze the pros and cons of arbitration agreements and class waivers, and learn what to expect in arbitration and how it compares to litigating wage and hour cases in court
  • Learn about the ethical issues that arise during discovery and how to navigate the technological challenges of a document review and production
  • Understand the key factors in settling wage and hour class and collective actions and how to gain court approval of the settlement and attorneys’ fees and costs

This program is designed for all practitioners who are involved in wage and hour issues, at all knowledge and experience levels, whether from the perspective of outside counsel or in-house counsel in the private and public sectors, labor union attorneys, representatives of individuals or groups of employees, or human resources and corporate compliance executives and representatives. Litigators, government regulators and advisors, judges, arbitrators and mediators in the wage and hour  area will also find this program particularly valuable.
