C. Andrew (“Andy”) Head is the managing owner of Head Law Firm, LLC, an employee rights class and collective action litigation firm with offices in Atlanta and Chicago. In his twenty years of employment law practice before he formed Head Law Firm, LLC in 2015, Mr. Head exclusively represented management and corporate clients as a partner at Holland & Knight, LLP, followed by a mixed employer/employee-side practice as a partner at two Atlanta area firms before dedicating his practice primarily to the representation of employees in class and collective action wage and hour litigation.
Through his nationwide wage and hour litigation practice, his active service in various employment law organizations, and as a frequent presenter at continuing legal education seminars by ABA, PLI, NELA, ICLE, and others, Mr. Head has developed a national reputation as a leading practitioner in wage and hour class and collective actions. He has litigated over a hundred class and collective actions involving complex challenges such as fluctuating workweek pay plans, misclassification of employees as exempt from applicable state and federal overtime laws, regular rate violations, and other highly technical issues of wage and hour law compliance.
Mr. Head currently serves as the Co-Chair of the FMLA Subcommittee of the American Bar Association’s Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee, Chapter Editor for the ABA’s Fair Labor Standards Act Treatise published by BNA, and Chapter Editor for the ABA’s Wage and Hour Laws: A State-by-State Survey also published by BNA.
