In case you missed it, Seyfarth’s Tenth Annual Workplace Class Action Litigation Report was published early this year. Click here to download a PDF of the introduction “trends” chapter and the “top ten” settlements chapter.

Called the “definitive source of information on employment class action litigation” by EPLiC Magazine and a resource that “no practitioner who deals with employment claims . . . should be without,” the 802 page Report covers 1,123 class action rulings rendered by federal and state courts in 2013 on workplace issues. The eBook version is now available to download to a  PC or mobile device. The eBook is fully searchable, allows users to bookmark useful sections for easy future reference, and has a host of other features –  including the ability to underline and take notes in the iPad version. We hope this will make the WCAR an even more useful and user-friendly resource.
