In light of the increased salary requirement for the white collar exemption included in the Department of Labor’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, many firms are evaluating whether to reclassify some of their exempt employees to non-exempt (in which case they will have to pay overtime) or increase the employee’s salaries to meet or exceed the new threshold.  The employee’s work hours are critical to properly evaluate the available alternatives, but most firms do not have reliable measures of work hours for exempt employees.  Furthermore, with the potential for a change in the duties test for the white collar exemption, firms will likely need to understand what tasks their employees are performing and the portion of time spent in each to ensure proper classification.  The goal of this webinar is to provide several options available to estimate work time and understand employee’s activities so that firms can make informed decisions regarding employee classification.

Law, science, and public policy collide in environmental class actions. While lawsuits over oil spills or toxic emissions can raise some unique questions in the context of common class action issues such as ascertainability and preemption, the lessons of the case law—like how your expert can make or break your case—apply to any complex litigation. In this seminar you will learn from experienced class action litigators and environmental law experts about how to best represent your client in environmental disputes.

The California Supreme Court’s recent Quesada decision is a reminder of the power of California’s consumer protection laws, including the Consumer Legal Remedies Act (CLRA) (CC §§1750–1784).

The CLRA provides for actual and punitive damages, injunctive, and restitution for consumers injured by certain unfair methods of competition or unfair or deceptive practices in the advertising and sale of consumer goods and services. In addition, if the consumer is a senior citizen or is disabled, he or she may be awarded an additional sum if he has suffered substantial physical, emotional, or economic damage as a result of the defendant’s conduct. This webinar provides an overview of the CRLA as well as an update to changes in application and practice of the CRLA.

Wage and Hour class actions put employers at great financial peril.  They are easily filed, expensive to defend against, and expose the employer to hefty fines and penalties on top of statutory damages.  Worse, insurance companies tend to deny or severely limit coverage for them.
