On October 20, 2014, a collective action lawsuit was filed against the NCAA and more than 300 Division I colleges and universities, alleging that student-athletes qualify as employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and therefore are entitled to minimum wage and overtime payments. This lawsuit could force dramatic changes throughout collegiate athletics – if it isn't dismissed through early procedural and substantive motions.

During this complimentary live webinar we will discuss:

  • The allegations and status of Sackos v. NCAA
  • A comparison of Sackos and the NLRB's Northwestern decision
  • An overview of FLSA collective action litigation
  • Issues to anticipate in the first twelve months of Sackos v. NCAA
