eLunch briefing: Wage and Hour Update — July 14th

brought to you by IMA member Winston & Strawn’s Labor and Employment Practice . . .

Last year saw the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) take class action waivers head-on, the Department of Labor (DOL) double the salary cut off for overtime exemptions, the Supreme Court open the door for statistics in class certification, and novel claims under California law. Please join Joan Fife and Emilie Woodhead for an eLunch discussing changes in the wage and hour landscape and strategies to help companies face them. Areas that will be addressed include:

  • An update of significant cases under the FLSA
  • The DOL’s new “white collar” overtime exemptions
  • The future of arbitration agreements with class action waivers
  • California update: novel claims being asserted and scrutiny over settlements

Speakers include Joan Fife, Partner, San Francisco, and Emilie Woodhead, Of Counsel, Los Angeles,
