Seyfarth Synopsis: EPLiC delivers acclaim for Seyfarth’s 2016 Annual Workplace Class Action Litigation Report, called it the “must have” resource that corporate counsel “cannot afford to be without it…”
We are humbled and honored by the recent review of our 2016 Annual Workplace Class Action Litigation Report by Employment Practices Liability Consultant Magazine (“EPLiC”) – the review is here. Here is what EPLiC said:
“The Report is a ‘must-have’ for legal research and in-depth analysis of employment-related class action litigation. Anyone who practices in this area, whether as an attorney, risk manager, underwriter, or broker cannot afford to be without it. Importantly, the Report is the only publication of its kind in the United States.”
We are often asked – “How does it happen – how do you produce your Annual Workplace Class Action Litigation Report”?
The answer is pretty simple – we live, eat, and breathe workplace class action law 24/7.
Each and every morning we check the previous day’s filings of EEOC lawsuits and workplace class actions relative to employment discrimination, ERISA, and wage & hour claims. We do so on a national basis – both in federal courts and all 50 states. Then we check, log, and analyze every ruling on Rule 23 certification and subsidiary issues throughout federal and state trial and appellate courts. This is also done on a national basis. We put this information in our customized database; we analyze and compare the rulings on class action issues and Rule 23 topics; and then we prepare an analysis of each decision.
Our class action practitioners – a group of over 170 Seyfarth lawyers – contribute to the process of building the database and analyzing decisional law on a daily basis.
We have being doing this on a 24/7 basis for 13 years, and publishing the Annual Workplace Class Action Litigation Report in the first week of January of each calendar year.
The result is a compendium of workplace class action law that is unique in its analysis, scope, and comprehensiveness.
We were particularly proud when EPLiC recognized our Report as the “state-of-the-art word” on workplace class action litigation.
Thanks EPLiC. We sincerely appreciate the kudos.
We are now more than halfway through the year, and we have tracked and analyzed more class action decisions to this point in 2016 than in past years. On this pace, our 2017 Report will cover more decisions than ever before!
