    Event Synopsis:
    The recent years have witnessed significant developments in wage and hour laws. The increased scrutiny against wrongful acts, neglect, and breach of contract as well as the continuous legislation efforts in the wage & hour field, have created an upsurge in class action lawsuits against employers.

    With a more complex litigation and regulatory landscape, it is imperative for employers and their counsel to come up with effective compliance strategies to mitigate the risks of potential wage and hour law violations. They must also be able to develop techniques to minimize the repercussions of class action lawsuits in this rapidly evolving legal climate.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help businesses, employers and their counsel understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of wage and hour laws, the upsurge in wage-and-hour-related class action cases and the emerging issues surrounding this topic. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective strategies for maximum compliance.

    Key topics include:
    • Wage and Hour Class Actions: Trends and Significant Developments
    • Identifying Red Flags
    • Overcoming Compliance Issues: Practical Tips
    • Litigation Strategies
    • What Lies Ahead
