Course/Product Description

Avoiding and Preventing FLSA Collective Actions And State Wage Class Actions

Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) collective actions represented the largest category of class action filings in U.S. District Courts in the last fiscal year. Wage and hour actions permeate virtually all industries resulting in huge jury verdicts and settlements.

This topic will teach you how to avoid these disasters through effective preventive action, including attorney-client privileged audits of employee classification and off-the-clock work issues; how to identify and correct these problems before litigation; how to identify and address exempt to nonexempt conversions and back pay issues; and how to do the tough liability and damages analysis that can lead to cost-effective settlements with government or private plaintiffs when litigation is threatened.

This topic is critical for employers looking to make sure their "house" is in order before getting into costly litigation.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
