Summary

With class action waivers here to stay, this panel will explore how plaintiffs’ attorneys continue to pursue collective worker actions by filing multiple individual arbitration claims against the same employer.  Panelists will discuss the logistics of running a mass arbitration, strategy considerations, how to use PAGA or FLSA lawsuits in conjunction with mass arbitrations, and the special ethical considerations presented by the settlement of mass arbitrations.
