For employers, 2021 was a challenging year. The post-election landscape, evolving federal and state law, and the effects of a seemingly endless global pandemic created a difficult business climate. Efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 were met with stiff resistance — legal and otherwise; still, employers persist in earnest to maintain their operations safely and efficiently. However, 2021 brought other important, non-COVID-19 developments as well.

Our latest issue of the Class Action Trends Report offers a snapshot of the most significant employment-related class action activity from the tumultuous year. We look at vaccine mandate litigation, significant procedural decisions, wage and hour suits, and the continuing rise of cases brought under the California Private Attorneys General Act and Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act, among other litigation trends.
