Written by the attorneys of Littler's Class Action Practice Group, Employment Law Class Actions provides a comprehensive review of the strategic, procedural and legal issues that arise in such matters.

The Third Edition includes an extensive expansion and reorganization of the publication and features a host of new and significant developments in this ever changing area of law, including:

• A comprehensive update of significant case law.

• An expansive discussion of the Supreme Court's decision in Dukes v. Wal-Mart and its impact on class actions.

• New issues and developments in FLSA collective actions and California state law wage and hour class actions (which currently comprise approximately 90% of all employment class actions filed).

• A new chapter covering issues related to e-discovery.

• Discussion of unique issues regarding the CAFA appeals process.

• New developments regarding EEOC pattern and practice cases.

• Emerging trends in standards of admissibility of expert testimony regarding class certification; the role of statistical, anecdotal, and social science evidence; and application of the Daubert standard post-Dukes.

• Further evolution of case law regarding enforceability of arbitration agreements in class and collective actions and the validity of class action waivers (including U.S. Supreme Court's decision in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion and the NLRB's decision in D.R. Horton).

• Developments in pre-certification communication with potential class members and other pre-certification discovery issues.

• Recent developments in California class actions under the Private Attorneys General Act.
