With up to a dozen wage and hour class actions filed against California employers daily, wage and hour claims continue to be among the most frequently litigated in the Golden State-and the most costly! This fast-paced session, attorneys will review the most common mistakes that lead to wage and hour litigation and offer practical steps employers can take to minimize risk. They will also review perennial litigation "hot spots," with an emphasis on emerging areas, including independent contractor misclassification, overtime rate miscalculation, unpaid wage claims, meal and rest break liability, wage statement (pay stub) violations, waiting time penalties, and more.


Presented by Christopher W. Olmsted | Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C.

Mr. Olmsted helps businesses avoid employment-related legal claims by providing California employment law compliance advice. He also defends employers in a variety of litigation matters. Mr. Olmsted's employment law compliance and litigation experience includes: California FEHA and Title VII discrimination, harassment and retaliation claims; wrongful termination claims; wage and hour compliance and defense of claims and labor agency audits; California CFRA, federal FMLA and other leaves of absences; misappropriation of trade secrets, non-competition and non-disclosure agreements; California and federal ADA accommodation; gender pay equity audits and litigation; terminations, reductions in force and severance agreements; independent contractor misclassification claims; employment agreements and policies; labor Commissioner claims (Department of Industrial Relations, Division of Labor Standards Enforcement claims), EDD and Unemployment Insurance claims.

Mr. Olmsted serves as an instructor at Cal State University San Marcos, teaching a course titled "Legal Issues for HR Professionals" as part of the Human Resource Management Certificate Program. He is frequently an invited speaker for various industry groups, and regularly publishes employment law articles.
