Employment Law

Our lawyers represent individuals and businesses in many aspects of the relationship between companies and individuals, including negotiating and drafting employment agreements, independent contractor agreements, and agency and commission agreements. We also work to resolve workplace disputes for our clients through negotiation, mediation, and if necessary, litigation in courts, before arbitrators or before agencies and divisions of government such as the California Labor Commissioner's Office or Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) or Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE). As part of our services, we defend clients against class actions and Private Attorney General Act (PAGA) claims.

We address issues arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act (including the Equal Pay Act), the California Wage Orders, the California Labor Code, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, as amended, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Employment and Housing Act (which Acts prohibit discrimination based upon race, religion, sex, age, color, national origin and disability), the Family and Medical Leave Act, the California Family Rights Act, and various other state and federal laws governing the relationship between companies and workers, including California wage and hour law.

Ultimately, our approach is marked by our commitment to client centricity and efficient and effective resolution to these issues. This means protecting client resources in the immediate and long term. This approach has served us in hundreds of cases, and we are ready to bring it to your legal issues, regardless of circumstance.
