Description: Wage and hour class and collective actions are some of the most costly lawsuits employers can face.  Wage and hour litigation also continues to be the fastest growing type of class action, with no sign that it will slow down. To minimize the risk of potentially staggering damages awards, employers and their counsel should be prepared to manage and defend these actions from the moment a complaint is filed.
Join Practical Law and Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C. for a 75-minute webinar providing guidance on early litigation issues facing wage and hour class and collective action defendants, including:
·        Removal based on CAFA jurisdiction.
·        Rule 68 offers of judgment.
·        Dismissal on the basis of bankruptcy filings.
·        Communicating with putative class or collective action members.
·        Handling requests for names/addresses.
·        Prospective changes to policies/practices during litigation.
A short Q&A session will follow.
Following the webinar, you will receive links via email to the Practical Law resources listed below: 
·        Defending Wage and Hour Collective Actions
·        Wage and Hour Laws: State Q&A Tool
·        Wage and Hour Claims Toolkit
