How to Handle “Shakedown” Lawsuits and Litigation Trends for 2019 and Beyond

Join attorneys from BakerHostetler and the Restaurant Law Center, the legal affiliate of the National Restaurant Association, as they walk you through what to do and what not to do if you’re involved in a “shakedown” lawsuit.

These lawsuits might stem from ADA “drive bys,” where attorneys cite a “violation” of the Americans with Disabilities Act, or claims that your website is not ADA-compliant. They might be notices or a lawsuit from so-called Background Bandits that you’re violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act restricting the use of background checks, or a lawsuit or EEOC Charge claiming systemic violations of Title VII.   If you’ve heard of the Private Attorney General Act you may know that it’s causing big litigation issues in California and might be coming to a state near you. These issues and more will be covered in the hour-long session.
