His experience includes, among other cases, defending a nationwide collective action covering more than 65,000+ individuals; several nationwide hybrid actions (alleging violations under both state law and the FLSA); an enforcement class action filed by the EEOC; an enforcement collective action filed by the U.S. DOL; and a nationwide class action alleging racially discriminatory hiring and placement practices.
