In this webinar, Vice President Peter Simon will join a panel to discuss the use of representative evidence in the form of statistical sampling, which has become increasingly common in wage and hour litigation in the wake of the US Supreme Court's Tyson Foods, Inc. v. Bouaphakeo decision. The panelists will describe the fundamentals of statistical sampling and discuss the most significant aspects of its use as proof of a prima facie case under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Speakers will also review how various statistical sampling techniques can be leveraged effectively for use as statistical evidence, and identify practical tips and strategies to mitigate risks.
