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.
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.
