Bridgeport is hosting its 8th annual wage & hour conference at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles December 15-16. The conference has a good mix of plaintiff and defense counsel on its panels, and we've both attended and spoken at prior Bridgeport conferences and found them to be worthwhile. There's a lot of new information, particularly in the areas of arbitration and class action litigation, and its possible, though unlikely, that there will be a new Brinker decision for discussion by the time this conference comes around in two weeks. Here's what Bridgeport has to say about their program:
Brinker has been heard and the landscape of wage & hour litigation has changed in the aftermath of AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion and Dukes v. Wal-Mart. Bridgeport’s Annual Wage & Hour program explores in-depth the critical aspects of Wage & Hour litigation with a focus on current practice. The two day program explores in detail the critical aspects of Wage & Hour litigation in both the single case and class action context. The well-balanced program offers the perspective of very experienced litigators. This two day program is chaired by Arthur Silbergeld of Dickstein Shapiro and Aashish Desai of Mower, Carreon & Desai.
