Wage & Hour Class Action Defense

The wage and hour landscape continues to change significantly in the wake of recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions and the California Supreme Court's ruling in Brinker Restaurant Corp. v. Superior Court of San Diego County (Hohnbaum).

Lawyers in our national Labor & Employment practice have been monitoring these developments and counseling clients on the changing landscape. In May, Pascal Benyamini, a partner in the firm's Los Angeles office, and Fey Epling, counsel in the firm's San Francisco office, presented a webinar on the Brinker decision, the impact of the ruling and best practices for employers.

The group is also blogging on wage and hour class action defense issues, as well as other labor and employment law matters, at  and on Twitter at @Drinker_Labor.

Cheryl Orr, a partner in the firm's San Francisco office and co-chair of the practice, recently discussed how Drinker Biddle approaches the defense of wage and hour class action claims for clients.
