  • Wrongful Termination
  • Harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Wage and Hour Violations

Employer Defense Litigation

We also defend wrongful termination claims under California Labor Code §132a made within the workers’ compensation system. The Employment Law Department further defends employers charged by state or federal government agencies for alleged violations of labor and employment laws, such as wage and hour, employment discrimination and harassment.

On a daily basis, we assist business owners with drafting the following documents in an effort to prevent future claims:

  • Applications for Employment
  • Confidentiality Agreements
  • Employee Handbooks
  • Executive Compensation
  • Management Training Manuals
  • Non-solicitation Agreements
  • Policies, Procedures & Guidelines
  • Severance Agreements

Our employment defense attorneys are ready to provide counsel pertaining to engaging temporary staff, interviewing, recruitment and hiring, conducting and documenting employee evaluations, administering discipline, making terminations, and maintaining personnel files — as well as compliance with state and federal legislation regarding:

  • Wage & Hour
  • Workers Compensation
  • Unemployment
  • Employment Drug Testing
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
