ACI’s 14th National Conference on
Wage & Hour Claims and Class Actions
Monday, January 30 to Tuesday, January 31, 2012
Hyatt Regency Miami, Miami, FL
The wage & hour landscape has been turned upside down post-Wal-Mart v. Dukes and AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion. Your colleagues and clients will be in Miami in late January to hone their skills and knowledge needed to succeed in this rapidly expanding and evolving area of law, adapt to emerging regulations and changing enforcement priorities, and respond new and innovative claims. Join them to ensure that you are prepared to navigate and defend against the leading type of class action in the country.
The sheer number of wage and hour claims and class actions across the country is staggering. Wage and hour class actions are the leading type of class action nationwide – and by a large margin. With so many of these cases getting certified and succeeding at trial, compliance and prevention are equally important to trial strategy. The Obama administration continues to send a strong signal that it is making wage and hour enforcement a priority, and it is clear that preventing, managing, and defending these claims remains a key issue for companies across the nation.
It is with this in mind that ACI has developed its 14th National Forum on Wage and Hour Claims and Class Actions, the nation’s premier forum for in-house counsel, labor and employment attorneys, and class action lawyers. We have assembled an extraordinary faculty of attorneys from the nation’s top firms, a full panel of distinguished jurists, and in-house counsel from CBS, Bank of America, IBM, Ryder System, Bayer, Citigroup, Canam Steel, Family Dollar Stores, Northrop Grumman, Interval International, Coca Cola, Ally Financial, PSEG, DHL Global Forwarding, Viacom, Paychex, Direct TV, and many others. Our unparalleled faculty will provide you with expert advice, insider strategies, and comprehensive updates on all of the latest developments, including:
• Complying with and responding to changing Wage & Hour Federal and State Priorities and Investigations
• Clarifying the standards and requirements for class certification in light of Wal-Mart v. Dukes
• Using AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion and arbitrations agreements as a tool to avoid class treatment
• Determining when employees are “on the clock” and avoiding overtime claims in the digital work world
• Examining recent rulings by courts and the DOL to ensure proper classification of employees
Don’t forget to also sign up for the pre- and post-conference MASTER CLASS:
