Use of Experts in Employment Litigation: A Primer for In-House Counsel
Many garden-variety employment claims do not need defense expert witnesses, but for high-stakes, big-dollar, and/or collective or class actions, experts should be seriously considered. Strategic deployment of effective experts – ranging from statisticians, forensic computer technologists, human resources professionals, handwriting experts, CPAs, and psychiatrists – can be instrumental in winning cases or significantly reducing settlement values. Likewise, in prosecuting non-compete and trade secret claims against former employees, experts can make or break the case.
