Jason Lichtman Discusses Tyson Foods Supreme Court Case in Public Justice Webinar

Lieff Cabraser partner Jason L. Lichtman will be a featured panelist in Public Justice’s upcoming quarterly speaker series. Along with Jocelyn Larkin of the Impact Fund, Mr. Lichtman will be discussing class actions in a new Supreme Court in a webinar on April 5, 2016.

In particular, he will be focusing on the Tyson v. Bouaphakeo case, which was brought by low-wage workers at a Tyson Foods pork-processing plant seeking overtime pay for time spent putting on and taking off their work clothes (“donning and doffing”). In March 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the workers’ favor, noting that in a situation where an employer failed to keep proper records, statistical evidence could be used to show the hours that had been worked.
