Christopher Trebilcock to Present at ACI National Wage and Hour Conference in Los Angeles

August 22, 2014

Miller Canfield principal Christopher Trebilcock will discuss proposed Fair Labor Standards Act minimum wage increases and executive “paycheck fairness” directives at the American Conference Institute’s 22nd National Forum on Wage and Hour Claims and Class Actions to be held September 29 and 30, 2014, in Los Angeles, Calif.

Trebilcock’s presentation – “Assessing the Legal Implications of Proposed FLSA Minimum Wage Increases and Obama Directives Regarding ‘Paycheck Fairness’ – will take place on the first day of the conference, September 29, at 3:10 pm. He and attorney Adam Karr will address the potential impact of “proposed and forthcoming increases in the FLSA minimum wage across various states and key industries,” including how employers avoid potential litigation threats. 

He will also break down the implications of the Obama Administration’s Federal Contract Minimum Wage Order, and what the proposed Paycheck Fairness Act would mean for employers. Finally, he’ll discuss the types of “equal pay” lawsuits being brought by plaintiffs and how employers can best prepare themselves to defend such actions. 

Trebilcock is the deputy leader of Miller Canfield’s nationally respected Employment and Labor Group and regularly assists clients with wage and hour issues under the FLSA and reductions in force. He previously worked in the U.S. Department of Labor, National Office, and has assisted employers in proactive internal FLSA reviews to avoid litigation.
