A discussion about the impact of the recent ruling in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Johnson v. NCAA, where the court denied the NCAA/several local college’s (Villanova, Drexel, Lasalle, Penn, Temple, Penn State, etc.) motion to dismiss and held that the complaint plausibly alleges that the students are employees of the colleges for purposes of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The plaintiffs are student athletes who engage in interscholastic athletic activity for their colleges and universities and allege that they are employees who should be paid for the time they spend related to those athletic activities. The webinar will discuss the case status (including the status of the interlocutory appeal), the court’s decision, how the case impacts student-athletes and universities, and the interplay between the case and NIL developments.
