Chris Owens on the difficulty of bringing class action cases

September 18, 2018  • Economic Opportunities Program

In September 2018, the Economic Opportunities Program hosted “The Justice System and Jobs: How Court Decisions Are Shaping Americans’ Work Lives,” which examined the critical role that courts have in setting the rules for the employer-employee relationship.

In this clip, Chris Owens of the National Employment Law Project discusses how it is becoming more difficult for workers to bring class action cases, and why this is concerning.
