Millions of American workers each year are denied overtime pay because their employer misclassified them as "independent contractors." Guidelines issued this week by the U.S. Department of Labor, states +Rachel Geman, one of the nationally prominent lawyers at Lieff Cabraser who represents workers, serve as "an important reminder that the law and regulators expect that workers will be classified as employees" and paid overtime wages.

As noted by The Bar Association of San Francisco ("BASF"), "Implicit bias has catapulted into the spotlight in the last several months as organizations begin to be challenged by women who claim they have been denied opportunities and equal compensation because of the stereotypes and hidden biases of decision makers." On July 28, 2015, +Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP attorney Kelly M. Dermody will participate in a panel discussion entitled "Implicit Bias: Fact or Fiction?" at BASF. The panel will examine implicit bias and whether it explains the lack of women in positions of power and leadership in law firms and corporations.

If you can not attend the program, BASF offers it online as well (for a fee). #implicitbias #genderdiscrimination

Strengthening the ability of patients harmed by medications with dangerous, undisclosed side effects to hold the drug makers accountable, a California appellate court recently reinstated a $6.5 million jury award against the makers of Actos, a diabetes medication. 

The jury had found that the plaintiff developed bladder cancer from taking Actos.  The trial court, however, overturned the verdict because the expert that testified for the plaintiff had not definitively ruled out all other potential causes for the plaintiff’s bladder cancer.  The appellate court found the trial court erred in using “a more rigid standard than is required to prove causation in civil cases.”  It was not necessary that the plaintiff show Actos caused his bladder cancer with “absolute certainty so as to exclude every other possible cause.” Instead, it was sufficient if the jury found based on the expert testimony that it was more probable than not that plaintiff’s #bladdercancer was caused by #Actos
