The attorneys from Falls Legal will be traveling to Washington D.C. March 31-April 1 to attend a national conference for attorneys that represent employees in wage and hour cases. This 2-day seminar is sponsored by the National Employment Lawyers Association, “NELA”, the country’s largest organization of lawyers who exclusively or primarily represent employees in cases involving employment law issues. Some of the topics that will be covered at this years’ seminar include successfully representing service industry (tipped) employees, recovering wages in “joint employer” situations, effective deposition strategies in collective action wage cases, and successful mediation practices. “A fundamental key to successfully representing employees in any type of employment dispute is continuing education and networking with some of the top legal minds in the country, particularly when it comes to class and collective actions,” said Falls Legal attorney, Ashley Falls. The attorneys at Falls Legal are active members of NELA and support its initiatives, including the amicus curiae program and The Employee Rights Advocacy Institute for Law & Policy.
