John Ho, Jeremy Glenn and Jennifer Williams, members of Cozen O'Connor's Labor & Employment department, will be speaking at this event in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

Jeremy will be moderating a panel called "The US Department of Labor: A Candid Conversation." On this panel, the former U.S. DOL Solicitor will speak openly about working for the Obama Administration, the trials and tribulations of her work in public office, and her personal views on what we might expect to see for wage and hour in the future.

John will be a moderator on a panel called "What Wage and Hour Case is Susceptible to Class Relief and What is Not." This landmark Supreme Court decision will be discussed by attorneys who handled the case through the Supreme Court, followed by a panel discussion on the extent of its fallout and significance.

Jennifer will be speaking on a panel called "Trending Ethical Concerns from the Trenches." This program will address significant and emerging ethical issues that arise under federal and state wage and hour laws and related employment statutes. It is intended for practitioners who represent parties in individual, class, collective, and joint actions. Topics include ethical considerations regarding soliciting & advertising, contact with potential/putative class or collective members before and after a complaint is filed, notices, ex parte contacts, and more.

Michael will be speaking on a panel called "Trying or Arbitrating a Wage and Hour Case." Hear from FLSA litigators who have recently tried or arbitrated wage and hour cases, as they discuss what they would do the same and differently, representative testimony and evidence, witness preparation, motions in limine, and the trial/arbitration itself.
