Wage and hour claims under federal and state laws are surging.  In the federal courts alone, Fair Labor Standards Act case filings have increased over 25% in the past year.  Counsel responsible for wage and hour matters must understand how to identify and anticipate wage and hour risks so that they can manage those risks through compliance programs, responses to early warning signs, cost-effective defense of wage and hour investigations and litigation, alternative dispute resolution, and innovative structures for settlements.  The faculty is comprised of leaders in the field from the management bar and the plaintiffs’ bar who contribute both to the development of the substantive law and the practical aspects of managing wage and hour risks in and out of the courtroom.
