American Conference Institute’s 20th National Forum on

Wage & Hour Claims & Class Actions

January 30-31, 2014   Hotel: Hyatt Regency Miami   Miami, FL

 

The wage and hour landscape continues to evolve at a blistering pace, with the potential for damaging claims at an all-time high. Given the complexity of federal and state laws regarding classification of workers and overtime pay, the increased number of displaced employees in the current economy, and the recent enhancement of DOL enforcement efforts, it is no wonder why wage and hour litigation is the fastest growing type of class action today.

That is why it is essential that attorneys are fully prepared to defend and manage the latest wage and hour claims and class actions. Come join your colleagues and clients at the nation’s premier wage and hour forum and hone your skills and strategies needed to keep pace with this rapidly changing area of law, manage and defend against new and innovative claims, and prepare for emerging regulations and evolving enforcement priorities.
