Charlie Edwards on Panel for Wage and Hour Collective and Class Claims Strategies for Pursuing, Defending and Settling FLSA Actions
FLSA Teleconference - October 8
Employment lawsuits, particularly class and collective actions, have exploded in the last few years exposing employers to expensive and time consuming litigation. During 2007, the 10 largest class action wage and hour settlements totaled $319.3 million. In 2006, Citigroup settled a wage and hour case for $98 million, UBS Financial Services for $89 million, and UPS for $87 million.
The increase in collective and class claims alleging Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations has forced employers to develop creative strategies to defend against the suits. Employers and employees should also develop effective settlement strategies to minimize the time and expense of litigation.
Listen and participate from your telephone on October 8, 2008 as a panel of employment law attorneys (including Womble Carlyle's Charlie Edwards) — both plaintiff and defense — provides effective strategies for pursuing and defending against FLSA claims and best practices for reaching settlements.
