Webinar: The Role of Rigorous Analysis in Wage & Hour Collective Actions
Join Edgeworth experts Chuck Fields and Dr. JJ Prescott for a Webinar on Thursday, February 27, 12:30-1:30 p.m. ET.
In this Edgeworth Economics FORUM Webinar, Edgeworth experts Chuck Fields and Dr. JJ Prescott will share their economic insights and litigation experience regarding the importance of rigorous analysis to the certification of collective actions under the FLSA.
In recent decisions involving class certification under Rule 23, the Supreme Court has elevated the standard for rigorous analysis by denying class be certified due to a lack of “rigorous” analysis of the relevant data to prove commonality of injury across plaintiffs. Mr. Fields and Dr. Prescott will discuss the lessons from decisions like Wal-Mart v. Dukes and Comcast v. Behrend for the certification of collective actions in wage and hours litigations, drawing from real world examples such as meal-breaks litigations.
