2019 Wage & Hour Litigation and Management - San Francisco

The Wage and Hour landscape continues to shift, with major developments in federal and state law this year thanks to seismic decisions from the U.S. and California Supreme Courts, along with new legislation and administrative guidance. Bridgeport’s annual conference explores and explains in-depth, the critical and changing aspects of Wage & Hour law litigation. Expert panelists will discuss up-to-the-minute topics such as PAGA; enforceability of arbitration agreements post-Epiq Systems; Dynamex and its implications for the gig economy; individual, franchise and joint employer liability; exemptions; and more.  Successful trial counsel will share strategies for taking wage and hour cases across the finish line and winning. Panelists will also discuss the rules and approaches you can use to successfully mediate and settle cases, and how to make sure those settlements stick. The unique format for the conference will feature an explanation and then discussion of the aforementioned topics. The program is chaired by Catha Worthman of Feinberg Jackson Worthman & Wasow and Andrew Livingston of Orrick.
