California class action litigation has exploded, and employers typically face multi-million dollar exposure if they are ever served with a wage and hour class action or a PAGA representative action. Even before any settlement is reached, these cases can be devastating for employers both financially and operationally. Defending this type of litigation can be costly and complex, from responding to the lawsuit, engaging in discovery, evaluating potential exposure and final resolution, through either settlement or trial. In the last five years alone, Fisher Phillips attorneys in California have litigated hundreds of class actions and defended hundreds more PAGA actions in California. Now, they are taking their expertise and lessons learned to share with In-house Counsel and HR Directors successful approaches to effectively manage and defend class action and PAGA litigation.

During this two-part webinar series, experienced counsel will discuss the latest developments and trends that impact businesses, effective preparation for fighting class actions, and proven strategies on defending class and PAGA actions.

This webinar, designed for in-house counsel and HR directors will address:
