Announcing TheWage & Hour Collective and Class Litigation Webinar Series for Wage & Hour Blog Subscribers

Seyfarth Shaw's Insider's Advanced Guide to   Wage & Hour Case Law, Procedure and Trends

Wage and hour lawsuits have become the hottest area of workplace litigation, surpassing discrimination, harassment and pay-and-promotion as the dominant battleground in the American workplace. According to the Federal Judicial Center, the number of wage and hour cases filed in federal court increased 15% in 2011, continuing the trend that started a decade ago. To meet the need of employers faced with these lawsuits, Seyfarth Shaw recently published a new, first-of-its-kind treatise, Wage & Hour Collective and Class Litigation, addressing the defense of this type of workplace litigation.  

For an interactive - and exclusive - analysis of this changing landscape, please join us for our upcoming webinar series designed specifically for our community of subscribers to our Wage & Hour blog,
