About Paul, Plevin, Sullivan & Connaughton LLP
Paul, Plevin, Sullivan & Connaughton LLP was formed in 1998 by four partners who specialize in labor and employment law and litigation. Now with 25 lawyers devoted to defending and advising employers, PPS&C is recognized as one of California’s top management-side labor and employment law firms. Our lawyers represent employers in discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, trade secret, union-management, and other employment-related matters throughout California and, increasingly, nationwide. In addition, the firm has a robust practice representing employers in class and representative actions.
In addition to litigation, PPS&C’s attorneys counsel employers on labor/management relations, compliance matters, employment transactions, and a vast array of other day-to-day employment issues. The firm includes a transactional group that focuses exclusively on compliance and risk avoidance counseling; providing advice and guidance regarding investigations, reductions in force, leaves of absence and accommodations, wage and hour compliance, policy creation and modification, auditing, and severance and discipline issues.
In the recent years, wage and hour class action litigation remained the most common type of litigation that outpaced all other types of workplace class actions. As these kind of class actions are comparatively easy to prosecute, employees are empowered to file a lawsuit against employers violating wage and hour laws. The number of lawsuits related to wage and hour violations increases incessantly each year, creating a higher chance for non-compliant companies to face greater risks of being sued.
In this two-hour live Webcast, The Knowledge Group has brought together a team of seasoned leaders and professionals who will help the audience understand the most important aspects of Wage and Hour Class Actions. The panel will also provide an in-depth discussion of the new variations involved in defending and managing the latest wage and hour claims and class actions.
