Lieff Cabraser partner Rachel Geman spoke today, July 9th at the National Employment Lawyers Association’s 2020 Virtual Convention on a panel that discussed discovery in wage and hour cases.
Ms. Geman and the other panelists talked about “frequent areas where disputes tend to arise and/or where early discovery is key for later success: (a) discovery about arbitration formation in connection with a motion to compel; (b) representative discovery (how do you make a discovery plan and how do you field employers’ attempts to cherry pick or make representative mean “all”); (c) common discovery disputes in wage and hour cases; and (d) discovery for purposes of calculating damages including what discovery you need to prove willfulness.”
