Elizabeth Arnold participated in a two-part webinar series explaining the critical and changing aspects of the wage and hour landscape.
Expert panelists discussed up-to-the-minute topics such as the Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA); wage and hour litigation relating to remote and teleworkers, as well as low-wage workers; Dynamex and its implications for the gig economy; individual, franchise, and joint-employer liability; and exemptions. Panelists also discussed rules and approaches to mediate and settle cases, and how to make sure those settlements stick.
