You do your best to hire and manage your team. But sometimes things go wrong, or a disgruntled employee wants their pound of flesh. We defend against:
- Wage, hour & benefit claims
- Wrongful termination claims
- Workers compensation claims
- Workplace discrimination claims based on age, gender, race, national origin, religion, disability, pregnancy, or any other protected class.
- Sexual harassment claims
- Violations of employee privacy claims
- Whistleblower claims
- Independent contractor (AB 5) claims
If you are an employer, the deck often seems stacked against you. We seek to level the playing field to give you a fighting chance.
California employment law changes frequently and it is recommended that employers audit their employment documents at least every three years to ensure compliance. We can also help you avoid problems by drafting, reviewing or revising your employee handbook, employment contracts, operating procedures, personnel policies, and other documentation.
If you have been sued by one or more employees, we invite you to contact us to see how we can help you.
If you have not been sued YET, we invite you to contact us to see how we can help you keep from getting sued in the future.
