Michael Schmidt, vice chair of Cozen O'Connor's Labor & Employment department, will be speaking at this event in New York. Wage and hour litigation remains steady in the courts and in arbitration.  Attorneys, as well as human resources and compliance personnel, must keep up to date on the latest legal developments, be informed about federal initiatives and the status of the DOL regulations under the Trump administration,  as well as have knowledge of important new developments and nuances of paying employees correctly under state laws.  For litigators, it is essential to develop techniques and strategies for effective depositions and consider when and how to use expert witnesses.

This program is designed for all practitioners who are involved in wage and hour issues, at all knowledge and experience levels, whether from the perspective of outside counsel or in-house counsel in the private and public sectors, labor union attorneys, representatives of individuals or groups of employees, or human resources and corporate compliance executives and representatives. Litigators, government regulators, and advisors, judges, arbitrators, and mediators in the wage and hour area will also find this program particularly valuable.
