Proactive Labor and Employment Class Action Defense Strategies

Class certification is one of the most significant issues in litigation. In these cases, we implement a comprehensive effort to evaluate the merits of the case and, based on our findings, devise a proactive strategy that gives you the best chances of prevailing on the issue of certification.

In addition, we have developed tools to help you proactively reduce the chances of a class action. For example, our wage and hour audit tool allows us to review your internal processes and procedures to identify inadequacies that could make your company vulnerable to a class action, including:

  • FLSA coverage and exemptions
  • Recordkeeping and retention requirements
  • Proper classification of exempt/non-exempt workers
  • Payroll deductions
  • Methods of determining overtime pay for non-exempt employees
  • How differences between applicable federal and state wage and hour laws impact your company
