Labor and Employment
Our employment attorneys work closely with our clients to provide day-to-day human resources counseling, as well as employment law and labor solutions. We work closely with our clients to prepare and review personnel policies, employee handbooks, employment agreements, complex compensation plans, severance agreements and reduction in force plans. We regularly counsel and advise employers on wage and hour law, OSHA, ADA, and prevailing wage compliance. We assist employers in union avoidance strategies, termination strategies, employee benefits plans, employment related tax issues, and the regulation of social media in the workplace.
We keep a watchful eye out for potential hazards and costly threats to ensure that our clients have the right employment agreements, policies, procedures and plans in place. California has unique labor and employment laws that our attorneys are especially adept at handling and we provide advice and counsel on wide-ranging issues and management concerns.
To keep you up-to-date in a fast-changing legal landscape, our practice group also offers a full range of seminars on matters of labor and employment. We provide ongoing training on a host of topics such as anti-discrimination and harassment, internal investigations and legislative updates, as well as interactive workshops on industry specific issues.
When disputes remain unresolved, we represent our clients through every step of the way—from administrative agencies to state and federal court. We have a wealth of experience representing clients in administrative actions in front of the California Department of Fair Employment & Housing, the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, the California Employment Development Department, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the National Labor Relations Board. Our employment lawyers also handle litigation matters in state and federal courts, and we have extensive experience in large class action cases.
In every case, our attorneys take proactive and preventative approaches to claims filed by employees, and where necessary, we will vigorously defend our clients to ensure they achieve the best results in the most cost-effective manner.
