Gina Ameci, Shareholder in the firm's Labor & Employment section, will moderate a panel titled "Wage and Hour Litigation Wave: How to Avoid Common Mistakes in Paying Employees and Independent Contractors" as part of the Shale Insight 2017 Conference in Pittsburgh. Christian Antkowiak, Shareholder, will speak as a panelist.
Wage and hour litigation has skyrocketed over the past five years. Have you been caught up in this litigation? Have you wondered what you need to do right now to avoid future liability? Surprisingly, many companies are not even aware of the risks they face and how to proactively address this critical area of business. This interactive session will focus on the Department of Labor’s 2017 enforcement initiatives, and give participants an opportunity to listen to perspectives from the plaintiffs’ bar as they tell us what types of cases they are pursuing. Defense experts will also share tips and advice for remaining compliant in 2017 and beyond.
This event is approved for 1.0 Continuing Legal Education Credit and 1.0 Professional Development Hour.
