Eighth Annual Workplace Class Action Litigation Report

http://www.seyfarth.com/publications/Eighth-Annual-Workplace-Class-Action

Now in its eighth annual edition, Seyfarth’s Workplace Class Action Litigation Report examines the theoretical and strategic uncertainties stemming from the Supreme Court’s employment law and class action rulings in 2011, and the challenges they pose for companies and their defense counsel. The Report also makes clear that workplace lawsuit filings rose on nearly every front last year, from Fair Labor Standards Act and ERISA to government enforcement actions, with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission setting a new record for discrimination charges brought against private-sector employers in a single year. Seyfarth notes that the Supreme Court’s decision in Wal-Mart Stores v. Dukes, handed down last June, has already been cited more than 260 times in federal and state court opinions, and AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion has been cited 215 times - remarkable figures for rulings less than a year old. Dukes, which established a new standard for certifying class actions, and Concepcion, which held that federal arbitration law supersedes limitations imposed by individual states, opened the floodgates to a wave a new case law developments in class actions and class arbitrations, which will continue to evolve in the coming year and impact litigants for years to come.

Dukes v. Walmart

http://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=7023771032625911493&hl=en&as_sdt=2&as_vis=1&oi=scholarr

Supreme Court set to hear this term! The Dukes case involves the biggest employment discrimination class action ever filed in the US. With up to 1.5 million potential class members, Dukes tests the bounds of what similarities must be shared by class members in order to certify a class - although it is unclear if the Supreme Court will rule on this question. The lawsuit alleges that Wal-Mart discriminated against its female employees in its promotion and pay practices. Class members represent every level of employee in the company, from hourly store clerks to salaried managers, as well as employees from more than 3400 stores across the country. Wal-Mart challenged the certification of the class, claiming among other things that the class size is unmanageable and coercive - unmanageable because it would be virtually impossible for the company to defend itself against that many claims and coercive because a class that big forces the company into settling the claims rather than spend the money to litigate the action. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled en banc to uphold the certification of the class. The US Supreme Court granted cert in December and oral arguments are expected in March 2011.

Press Release: EEOC v. Sears

http://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/newsroom/release/2-5-10a.cfm

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) today announced court approval of the distribution of a $6,200,000 compensation fund in the landmark Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) litigation between the EEOC and Sears, Roebuck & Co. The distribution is being carried out pursuant to the terms of a consent decree approved by Federal District Judge Wayne Anderson on September 29, 2009. In its lawsuit against Sears, the EEOC had alleged that Sears maintained an inflexible workers? compensation leave exhaustion policy and terminated employees instead of providing them with reasonable accommodations for their disabilities, in violation of the ADA. The case resulted in the largest ADA settlement in a single lawsuit in EEOC history.

Two settlements have been proposed in a consolidated class action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada.

StopTrump.org

http://www.stoptrump.org/

If you are over 42 years old, don't bother to apply to become the next "Apprentice". It appears that Mr. Trump and Mr. Burnett don't want you. In six seasons, including the latest one called "Apprentice LA", 106 people out of approximately one hundred thousand applicants have been selected as finalists for these jobs. Not even one finalist was over 42 years old. Mr. Trump and Mr. Burnett are apparently not interested in even considering older job seekers, even though many of them are more qualified than the people who have been selected to become Apprentice finalists. The lawsuit was filed in Boston Federal Court on January 4, 2007. It seeks to be certified as a class-action. We encourage anyone over 40 years old who has previously applied to "The Apprentice", to contact us.
