We are pleased to invite you to a Foley Executive Briefing Series breakfast seminar exploring wage and hour class actions. More than any other employment-related matter, wage and hour cases are flooding the federal and state dockets. Moreover, they cost employers "big bucks" in settlements and litigation expenses. Recently, it was reported that wage and hour class actions realized more than $300 million in settlements, which covered employees in health care, transportation, manufacturing, retail, service, and office work.

Join us as Ellen C. Kearns, a Foley Litigation attorney with an extensive background in wage and hour law, provides updates on the latest developments in the wage and hour area, including:

  • Class actions — how they get started and how they are litigated
  • What issues are raised in class actions
    • Pre-work and post-work activities, including those
      performed by employees working at home, on personal digital assistants (PDAs), or on cell phones
    • Commuting time
    • Misclassification case
  • Joint employer liability — who is liable for damages
  • The pros and cons of internal wage/hour audits

Ms. Kearns was recently appointed editor-in-chief of the second edition of the seminal treatise on the Fair Labor Standards Act, updating her 1999 treatise. She also is editor of the Massachusetts Chapter on Wage and Hour Law for the BNA treatise entitled Wage and Hour Laws: A State-by-State Survey (BNA 2004).

Wage and Hour Class Actions: Filings Continue to Skyrocket is part of the Foley Executive Briefing Series.
