Defense Techniques in Certification, Liability and Damages
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide employment counsel with strategic approaches to dispute and leverage statistical evidence in complex wage and hour litigation. Our panel will review statistical sampling techniques and offer defense best practices for all phases of trial.

The panel will review these and other key questions:

- How may employment counsel leverage the California Supreme Court’s decision in Duran v. U.S. Bank? How will it apply in misclassification cases?
- What are the most effective challenges to the use of statistical sampling during the liability phase of trial?
