    The Supreme Court’s decision in Tyson Foods

    1 PM GMT

    In its second class action decision of the 2015-2016 term, on March 22, 2016, the Supreme Court issued a ruling in Tyson Foods v. Bouaphakeo that goes to the crux of every class action, namely, how to prove class-wide liability. In Tyson, a wage and hour action, the Court ruled that a class or collective action can be certified based on a representative statistical sample. The decision raises many legal and practical questions such as: Does the decision limit the reach of the Court’s Walmart Stores v. Dukes decision? Will it change class action practice? When should a representative statistical sample be used to justify class certification and what discovery is needed? How should employers defend against the use of such samples? This experienced panel of class action employment attorneys will discuss these and the other ways in which Tyson may affect your employment class and collective action practice.
