The practice of wage and hour law is constantly changing, and an understanding of the nuances of wage and hour actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act and related laws is essential for employee rights lawyers. Protecting Pay: Representing Workers With Wage & Hour Claims will examine cutting-edge developments in this dynamic field and provide practical tips and strategies to help you navigate the maze of regulatory, procedural, and substantive laws facing your clients whether you are enforcing their rights in court or arbitration. Our speakers from the bench, bar, and key government agencies will examine a wide range of topics, such as litigating claims on behalf of low-wage workers, the use of technology and experts, effective case settlement, defenses du jour, the evolving definition of “employee,” handling hybrid cases, and ethical issues. Plenary sessions will feature significant legal developments, a conversation with the Solicitor of Labor, arbitrating wage and hour actions, and “A View From The Bench” with esteemed federal judges. Informal discussions will offer seminar participants an opportunity to share their own strategies and tips on representing employees with wage and hour claims and to ask questions of other experienced practitioners.
