The Class "action Lawsuit" section of course needs to be culled or summarized and providing reading material to support Faculty's in-depth explanation would be helpful! Overall, a great course, indeed!

Great course, presenters deeply informed and able to convey knowledge in effective manner. The third question is phrased oddly, because the answer is fact -dependent, not general. As such, it has no probative educational value phrased in T/F format. It should be phrased as open-ended: "what is...?"

This is one of the best courses on the platform employment law effects everyone in some way. Very insightful information regarding different types of cases and the federal rules.
