Ted Anderson

Los Angeles, California

G. Edward (Ted) Anderson received a Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, Los Angeles, where he was an H.B. Earhardt Fellow, and an M.A. and a B.A. with Honors from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada.  His specialties while attending UCLA graduate school were Econometrics—which is the application of statistical principles and methods to economic data—and Labor Economics.  He is a member of the American Economic Association.

Dr. Anderson has taught courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics, industrial organization, and managerial economics at California State University, Long Beach, and has lectured in microeconomics and macroeconomics at UCLA and at Simon Fraser University.  His research includes studies of the effect of affirmative action on women's income, on occupational differences in earnings capacity and the effects of the Brinker decision on California wage and hour analyses.  Dr. Anderson has directed research projects for the U.S. Air Force on the earnings and employment of retired military personnel.

Since joining Welch Consulting full-time in 1988, Dr. Anderson's experience has included the development of large data bases from proprietary data of firms and from publicly available Census data; the statistical analysis of promotion, termination, hiring, and pay practices in large class action matters brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and more recently, analyses of wage and hour claims brought under the FLSA or California law.  These claims included unpaid overtime, improperly calculated regular rates of pay, misclassification of exempt employees, meal and rest break issues and a wide array of other wage and hour allegations brought in collective and class actions.

Dr. Anderson has acted as an expert witness or consulting expert in national wage and hours litigation, including matters brought under the FLSA, California and other State laws and he has testified in multiple- and single-plaintiff cases where discrimination and/or adverse employment outcomes were claimed, including potential race, gender and age-based violations. He is also experienced in evaluating, and has testified to, economic damages in single-plaintiff actions, such as wrongful termination, personal injury and wrongful death claims.
