Gigi O’Hara, partner and head of Kutak Rock’s national Wage and Hour Defense Group, will present a live 60-minute session at the 2023 HR Nebraska SHRM Conference on August 18, 2023. This marks the third consecutive year Gigi has been invited to present.
HR Nebraska is one of the largest conferences of its kind, attracting HR professionals from Nebraska and the surrounding states. Gigi’s presentation this year will examine wage and hour class actions and FLSA collective actions, including the variances between these multi-plaintiff lawsuits and effective strategies for controlling litigation.
Gigi regularly defends clients in FLSA litigation and wage and hour class actions across the United States. She has defended several significant, large-dollar wage and hour lawsuits brought under various theories, including child labor violations, exemption misclassification, independent contractor misclassification, unpaid overtime, unpaid minimum wage, unlawful deductions, improper calculation of the regular rate, off-the-clock work, missed meal and rest breaks, among other alleged violations. She also regularly defends clients against individual wage claims and wage and hour audits initiated by the U.S. Department of Labor.
