Class actions in the employment context raise unique concerns, including litigating against the EEOC, which is promising to bring larger nationwide investigations and lawsuits. Class and collective actions brought by the private plaintiff's bar present their own set of issues as well, including an employer's ability to communicate with a group of potential litigants it employs, both to investigate and defend claims and to conduct business. Ms. McFetridge will explain the vulnerabilities companies face in litigating employment class actions, as well as successful strategies in litigating against both the EEOC and the private plaintiff's bar.
