CALSPro’s 50th Conference To Discuss The Hottest Topic In Recent History – The Dynamex Decision
Posted July 5, 2018 in Conference
By Jay Roll
We are more than half way through the calendar year and your Conference committee has been hard at work. Our 50th Conference is shaping up to be a spectacular one! Please join us this year to discuss this year’s hottest topic facing our entire industry today. We are urging our members to attend this year’s conference to partake in the discussion/direction that may have a huge impact on our profession. In case you haven’t heard, there is big news in the California Supreme Court regarding their decision on April 30th, 2018, in the case of Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court regarding independent contractors. The court issued a ruling that makes it much more difficult for companies to classify workers as independent contractors.
Amber S. Healy from Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo, A Professional Law Corporation will join us to discuss the pressing issues businesses will face in the wake of the Dynamex decision. Amber Healy is a litigator with extensive experience litigating class actions and complex business matters in state and federal courts throughout California. Her practice focuses on the defense of employers and management in class action, multi-plaintiff, and single-plaintiff lawsuits. She has particular expertise in the area of wage and hour class actions alleging claims for off-the-clock work, unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, and missed meal and rest periods. Ms. Healy has litigated novel issues in both class actions and representative actions brought under California Labor Code’s Private Attorneys General Act before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the California Court of Appeal.
Though Ms. Healy now focuses her practice on the defense of class litigation matters on behalf of employers, she spent several years representing plaintiffs in class litigation, successfully representing classes ranging from 50 members to over 100,000 members and securing numerous class settlements exceeding a total recovery of $50 million. With her plaintiff-side background, she brings a unique perspective to the cases she handles.
We look forward to seeing you this year in Sacramento to join the discussion. This year’s 50th is one Conference that you won’t want to miss!
