John Lewis, Greg Mersol Present Webinar on Wage & Hour Class Actions

News / April 25, 2016

Partners John Lewis and Greg Mersol presented a webinar on April 14, 2016, titled, “Stemming the Onslaught of Wage & Hour Actions: Understanding the Legal Environment and the Use of Arbitration Agreements With Class Action Waivers to Limit Liability.” The webinar covers the current wage and hour enforcement environment, including white-collar exemptions, the duties test, problems with independent contractors, the Department of Labor’s guidance on the joint employer standard, problems resulting from the virtual workplace and “off-the-clock work."

The presentation then turned to Fair Labor Standards Act collective action strategy and ways to favorably resolve such actions and the use of arbitration agreements with class and collective action waivers as a means to manage future wage and hour claims.
