About Resolution Economics, LLC

Resolution Economics provides sophisticated economic, statistical and financial analyses, forensic investigations, forensic technology, dispute advisory, expert testimony, and specialized technology and analytic solutions to leading law firms, Fortune 500 companies, and government agencies.

The firm has provided expert testimony in class-action, multi-plaintiff and single plaintiff employment matters alleging discrimination in employment practices on the basis of age, race, gender, national origin, and ethnicity. The experts at Resolution Economics have managed complex, high profile litigation and compliance matters, many of which were national in scope.

The firm also provides assistance in information management, statistical sampling, and statistical analysis, as well as data collection, surveys, and observation studies.


The ever-changing landscape of wage and class hour class actions continuously evolves as recent developments shape it. Just recently, the U.S. Supreme Court approved the use of class action waivers in arbitration agreements, which prevent employees to merge their unpaid wages claims against their employers. While this is a favorable court decision, businesses should not be complacent with regard to wage and hour class actions.

There is a notable increase in the number of Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) lawsuits filed against employers. It is, therefore, imperative for employers to still focus on compliance and dispute resolution to minimize litigation risks.

Listen as a panel of industry subject matter experts discuss the significant enforcement trends on wage and hour class actions. They will present an in-depth analysis of notable court decisions as well as the potential challenges in litigation. Speakers will also offer risk mitigation strategies that will help employers avoid pitfalls.

In a live webcast, the speakers will discuss:

• Wage and Hour Class Actions: Recent Enforcement Trends & Developments
• Notable Cases/Court Decisions
• Practical Implications of Wage and Hour Cases
• Challenges in Wage and Hour Litigation and Settlements
• Risk Mitigation Strategies
• What Lies Ahead
