Online PR News – 08-May-2017 – New York – The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: FLSA Litigation: Updates and Developments in 2017. This one-hour event is scheduled on May 9, 2017 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET.
Lawsuits abounded in 2016 under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards affecting full-time and part-time workers in the U. S. private and public sectors. Plaintiffs lawyers and government enforcement agencies filed a plethora of FLSA class and collective actions in 2016, notably those on behalf of employees of Amazon, FedEx, Kmart and Wells Fargo. The flood of litigation is expected to continue in 2017, as plaintiffs’ counsel continue to refine strategies for class action certification. Concurrently, federal regulators have expanded overtime eligibility and increased scrutiny of how employers classify their workers.
In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will give an overview of the latest trends in FLSA litigation, a look at government enforcement and regulation, and insights into developing strategic practices to help mitigate the risk of litigation.
Key topics include:
• FLSA Wage and Hour Laws: Updates
• Employee and Over-time Exemptions
• Wage and Over-time Calculations
• Update on DOL Enforcement Actions
• Significant Litigation Issues
• Compliance and Litigation Risk
• Best Practices
