Seyfarth Synopsis: At our recent book launch for the 2020 Workplace Class Action, we discussed a circuit by circuit analysis of 303 certification orders in 2019. That analysis revealed interesting results including Plaintiff-centric success in certifying wage & hour cases at the highest rates of the decade. Conversely, employers fared well in the employment discrimination space. The location of these cases in “Plaintiff-friendly” jurisdictions also has continued to play an integral role. Jerry Maatman, senior partner at Seyfarth, analyzes these trends and more in our first exclusive video series of Workplace Class Action Trends in 2019 from his recent book launch event. Thank you for watching!
