About the program

California Employers and Litigators have wrestled for years over how to classify independent contractors and employees and which employees are exempt. In Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v.

Issues relating to exempt or non-exempt status of workers continues to be fertile ground for litigation in California. This focused program will look in detail at these issues as well as at liability, damages in these cases, settlement.
