Programs Included in this Bundle

Representing Guest Workers In Civil Litigation, NELA 2017 Annual Convention

Date Published: June 22, 2017

Summary

Guest workers represent a significant and growing sector of the American workforce. They also are some of the most vulnerable workers in the country, often experiencing wage theft, discrimination, retaliation, and human trafficking. Despite the high incidence of abuse within this sector, guest workers face barriers to justice, including finding counsel and accessing the courts. Our panelists are experts in guest worker litigation and review the nuts and bolts of litigating all aspects of guest worker cases under various statutes, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, and Title VII. They also review the challenges with representing guest workers, including those related to immigration status, and recent victories that have considerably expanded the laws that protect these workers.

Successfully Managing Large Cases, NELA 2017 Annual Convention

Date Published: June 23, 2017

Summary

Whether it is a nationwide wage and hour case or a multi-plaintiff or class discrimination case, managing large cases tests one’s ability to juggle many balls in the air at once. In addition to the many moving parts that come with representing numerous plaintiffs (sometimes numbering thousands), there are other issues to deal with, such as the defense bar’s increasing desire for more discovery of plaintiffs (including written and deposition discovery), multiple expert witnesses, and document review and management. Practitioners suggest best practices for overall case and team management, offer ways to preempt the defendant’s obstructive litigation tactics, and present strategies for communicating with large numbers of plaintiffs, gathering discovery from them, and keeping track of it all.
