Happy Thanksgiving to our loyal readers of the Workplace Class Action Blog!
We are busy at work as the holiday season begins in finalizing our start-of-the-year kick-off publication – Seyfarth Shaw’s Annual Workplace Class Action Litigation Report.
We anticipate going to press in the first week of January, and launching the 2016 Report to our readers from our Blog.
This will be our Twelfth Annual Report, and the biggest yet with analysis of over 1,300 class certification rulings from federal and state courts in 2015. As in past years, the Report will be available for download as an E-Book too.
The Report is the sole compendium in the U.S. dedicated exclusively to workplace class action litigation, and has become the “go to” research and resource guide for businesses and their corporate counsel facing complex litigation. We were humbled and honored by the review of our Report by Employment Practices Liability Consultant Magazine (“EPLiC”) — the review is here — EPLiC said: “The Report is the singular, definitive source of information, research, and in-depth analysis on employment-related class action litigation. Practitioners and corporate counsel should not be without it on their desk, since the Report is the sole compendium of its kind in the United States.”
The 2016 Report will analyze rulings from all state and federal courts – including private plaintiff class actions and collective actions, and government enforcement actions – in the substantive areas of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, and the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005. It also features chapters on EEOC pattern or practice rulings, state law class certification decisions, and non-workplace class action rulings that impact employers. The Report also analyzes the leading class action settlements for 2015 for employment discrimination, wage & hour, and ERISA class actions, as well as settlements of government enforcement actions, both with respect to monetary values and injunctive relief provisions.
Information on downloading your copy of the 2016 Report will be available on our blog in early January. Happy Holidays!
