David Barron, Attorney, Cozen O'Connor


In the aftermath of the pandemic, the workplace has changed, bringing new (and old) challenges for employers to correctly capture and pay employees in compliance with the law. This fast-paced seminar will provide an overview of the top ten areas of potential wage and hour risk for employers, including issues affecting both exempt and non-exempt employees.

Attendees in this session will:

  • Identify policies related to the pandemic that create potential wage and hour liability, including working from home, COVID-19 testing, and health screening practices
  • Understand the duties tests for exempt employees and identify common mistakes made by employers in designating exempt employees
  • Identify trends for “off-the-clock” work litigation and learn how to develop practical policies to minimize the risk of such suits


David partners with clients to offer practical solutions to labor and employment problems of all sizes and shapes before they end up in litigation. That might mean helping a human resources professional with a complicated disciplinary action or helping a Fortune 500 CEO respond to a union campaign. David understands his clients' businesses and works tirelessly and creatively to make a client's goal his goal. With a focus on partnership in decision making and an emphasis on supervisor training, many of David's clients have seen dramatic drops in employment litigation. Of course, not every dispute can be avoided.

Employment disputes can often be high stakes, bitter, and expensive. Unlike many employment lawyers, David is no stranger to a courtroom. Whether it is a non-compete or trade secret case, FLSA collective action, or an unfair labor practice charge at the NLRB, David has experience litigating high profile matters. In fact, because of his substantial trial experience, David is often called upon by clients to assist in complicated litigation outside of the employment realm, and David has successfully won cases across the state of Texas in both state and federal courts. Because of David's common sense approach to labor and employment issues, he is often quoted in newspapers and magazines. He has also appeared as an employment law professional on talk radio and local CBS and Fox affiliates.

David is Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the state of Texas and has been named a Texas Super Lawyer Rising Star in Texas Monthly magazine. When not helping clients, David can be found leading his son's Boy Scout troop, running a marathon, or hiking on a mountain.
