August 7 – Arbitration agreements friend or foe and to W2 or to 1099, that is the question!

There have been a number of recent changes to California law governing the enforceability of class action waivers in arbitration agreements and the classification of employees as independent contractors. These changes create new penalties and problems for employers of all sizes. However, recent court decisions significantly expand employers’ ability to circumvent some of these problems through arbitration agreements. Come learn effective strategies for limiting liability and addressing potential issues concerning proper classification, class actions, and collective actions.

Presented by Usama Kahf and Boris Sorsher, Attorneys at Law with Fisher Phillips. Usama and Boris represent and counsel employers in all areas of labor and employment law, including defense of class actions, wage & hour, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, employee discipline and termination, and trade secrets. Both Usama and Boris were recognized as a Southern California “Rising Stars” by Super Lawyers in 2013 and 2014.
