Samuel S. Shaulson

Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP

New York, NY, USA

Sam S. Shaulson is a co-chair of the Labor & Employment Practice's Financial Services Group and a member of Morgan Lewis's Advisory Board. He has represented clients in cases involving unpaid overtime and minimum wage; breach of contract; denial of employee benefits; discrimination based on age, race, sex, national origin, and disability; and whistleblower claims. Mr. Shaulson advises financial services, pharmaceutical, and other clients on executive compensation, employment policy issues, wage and hour issues, employment testing, reductions in force, and whistleblower, termination, and discrimination matters. He has also represented clients in traditional labor matters under the National Labor Relations Act and the Railway Labor Act and has negotiated collective bargaining agreements and individual employment contracts.

Mr. Shaulson handles complex litigation matters and has represented clients in more than 75 class and collective actions, including cases involving Title VII, the ADA, the FLSA, and state wage and hour laws. 

His wage and hour experience includes: defeating class certification for a major financial institution in an action claiming that financial advisors were denied overtime pay and their wages were subject to improper deductions; obtaining  summary judgment on claims that an information technology professional was misclassified as overtime exempt, thereby mooting class and collective action claims; defeating class certification of claim that financial services sales representatives were required to work off-the-clock; defeating a nationwide collective action certification for a major financial institution in an action claiming that loan officers were denied overtime pay; and obtaining summary judgment in an overtime misclassification case where the court ruled that reclassification from exempt to nonexempt does not raise an issue of fact for trial or create an issue of fact on willfulness.

Mr. Shaulson received his J.D. (Order of the Coif) from the University of Pennsylvania and his B.S.B.A. from Boston University's School of Management.
