Wage & Hour Compliance and Collective and Class Action Defense
Kelly Hart’s Labor & Employment attorneys have experience defending employers in class and representative actions. We focus heavily on obtaining dismissal or summary judgment of the asserted claims before the plaintiff can file a motion for class certification. In the event a motion for class action is filed, we are intensely familiar with those factual and legal arguments most likely to be successful in avoiding certifications. As a preventative measure, we routinely advise employers on wage and hour compliance to determine whether employees are properly classified and whether employer pay and benefit policies comply with applicable laws.
