  1. Strategies After Decertification, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    What do you do if the court decertifies your collective of hundreds or even thousands of opt-ins? Decertification need not be the end of your case, but you must have a well thought out game plan. Practitioners with post-decertification experience will discuss their strategies for keeping the pressure on defendants after decertification and issues with appealing the decision, communicating with decertified opt-in plaintiffs, re-filing individual or multi-plaintiff cases, tolling, and settling cases post-decertification.

  2. Dealing With Difficult Defense Counsel In FLSA Collective Actions: Common Defense Strategies & How to Ward Against Them, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    Wage and hour practitioners often face the scenario of working with difficult defense counsel. Our panelists will have an interactive discussion about handling common strategies that defense attorneys employ in FLSA collective actions, ranging from the “declaration blitz” during the conditional certification process, defendant’s claim that it “needs” pre-conditional certification discovery, harassing subpoenas sent to prior and current employers of opt-in plaintiffs, and efforts to unilaterally notice depositions of the entire opt-in class, among others. We will also discuss how to effectively plan for and handle the conferences with the court, in order to preemptively address some of these issues before they occur.

  3. Managing "Individualized" Discovery In FLSA Collective Actions, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    With increasing frequency, companies faced with FLSA collective lawsuits are aggressively seeking discovery from each and every opt-in plaintiff. The goal of these “individualized” discovery campaigns often seems to be the eventual dismissal of those opt-in plaintiffs who fail to respond to discovery. This program will cover tactics that plaintiffs’ lawyers can utilize in order to: avoid or minimize the scope of individualized discovery at the outset; efficiently respond to interrogatories and document requests through the use of template responses and omnibus objections; efficiently handle multiple depositions; and oppose motions to dismiss non-responsive opt-ins.

    This course has been approved in CA, OK, VT and IL. Please see your state's MCLE site for more information or to find out if attorneys may earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission.

  4. Wage & Hour Class & Collective Actions Two Years After Tyson Foods: Opportunities & Threats, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    In 2016, Tyson Foods gave a shot in the arm to wage & hour class actions. The case dispelled any notion that Dukes had been the death knell for representative cases. In the two years since Tysons Foods, employers throughout the country have raised a host of new arguments in their attempts to defeat collective and class actions in wage & hour cases including assertions that there is a fundamental inconsistency between Rule 23 opt-out classes and 216(b) opt-in collective actions. This panel will discuss those and other employer arguments to defeat certification, how employee advocates can respond, and how the courts have ruled.

    This course has been approved in CA, OK, VT and IL. Please see your state's MCLE site for more information or to find out if attorneys may earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission.

    • Wage & Hour Class & Collective Actions Two Years After Tyson Foods - Audio

Computer Sciences Corp., a misclassification case involving multiple white collar exemption defenses and claims brought under federal and state laws, which resulted in a 9-0 verdict for the plaintiffs.
