The U.S. Supreme Court has held in Genesis HealthCare Corp. v. Symczyk that an employee plaintiff whose individual claim was mooted by her employer’s offer of judgment had “no personal interest in representing putative, unnamed claimants, nor any other continuing interest that would preserve her suit from mootness.” The offer, made under Rule 68 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, occurred before the plaintiff moved for conditional certification of a class under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

The decision represents a victory for employers defending FLSA collective actions and should also significantly benefit corporate defendants that defend consumer class actions brought under Rule 23.

Join us for this webinar, in which we will explore in detail the implications of the Genesis HealthCare opinion.

Topics

• The holding and reasoning of the Court’s majority
• What the decision means for employers
• What the decision means for corporate defendants in consumer class actions
• What you need to do to take full advantage of the ruling
