PLI’s Managing Wage & Hour Risks 2012

February 13, 2012 – 9:00 a.m. EST
New York, NY & Webcast

Wage and hour claims under federal and state laws continue to hit record levels.  In the federal courts alone, Fair Labor Standards Act case filings have nearly doubled over the past five years.  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.

Topics to be covered

  • Hear from the Solicitor of the United States Department of Labor on wage and hour enforcement and regulatory initiatives
  • Jury trial of wage and hour claims, presented by counsel who tried three wage and hour class and collective actions to jury verdicts in 2011
  • Principal sources of wage and hour claims under federal and state laws
  • Development and implementation of compliance programs and “first alert” procedures
  • Latest developments on exempt status, off-the-clock work, preliminary and postliminary periods, overtime, minimum wage, and state law wage requirements
  • Requiring alternative dispute resolution for wage and hour claims, particularly as affected by the Supreme Court’s recent decision in ATT Mobility v. Concepcio
  • Managing wage and hour investigations, including increased enforcement activity by the U.S. Department of Labor
  • Managing wage and hour litigation, including the latest developments on discovery, class certification, “hybrid” cases, and dispositive motions
  • Structuring settlements - pre-litigation, and to resolve litigation
