Agenda for Breakout Session #3:

The numbers of wage and hour claims are still rising in California. Yet, they can be avoided. In this session you will join experts from four local employment law firms for this interactive session that demonstrates what can go wrong for Human Resources professionals during the litigation process. You will get a bird’s eye view of a wage and hour lawsuit showing the mistakes made leading to the litigation and proceeding through written discovery, deposition, and mediation. During this session, you will learn:

  • The role of Human Resources in preventing litigation.

  • Common mistakes leading to wage and hour disputes.

  • How to maintain your integrity when faced with conflicting interests.

  • How to effectively persuade management.

  • The Role of the Labor Commissioner in Wage & Hour Disputes.

  • How to efficiently work with legal counsel.
