KEY PRACTICE AREAS

DISABILITY LEAVES

Leave law cases involve, among other things, claims of failure to accommodate; failure to reinstate; failure to engage in the interactive process; and wrongful termination.

WRONGFUL TERMINATION

Both California and Federal employment laws prohibit employers from terminating employees under due to discrimination, employer retaliation, or other issues.

PREGNANCY LAWS

A pregnant employee or job applicant can experience pregnancy discrimination when she receives unfavorable treatment on account of her condition.

HARASSMENT

Sexual harassment and other forms of harassment arise when an employee is mistreated on a severe or pervasive basis because of his or her membership in a protected category.

CLASS ACTION

Class action lawsuits, also known as representative actions or class suits, are lawsuits where one or a handful of individuals are named in a lawsuit as representatives of a larger, collective group of individuals.

WAGE AND HOUR

Wage and hour violations are extremely common, and often times the employer or the employee does not even realize that they are being committed.

DISCRIMINATION

Discrimination cases arise when an employee is treated differently by his or her employer in a materially adverse manner on the basis of the employee’s gender, race, sexual orientation, or other protected category.

RETALIATION

Retaliation cases involve allegations that one or more adverse employment actions were taken in response to an employees’ refusal to violate a statute or report of the violation of a statute.

WHISTLE BLOWERS

A whistleblower is an employee who reports an employer’s violation(s) of the law and/or conduct that may cause damage to the public.

 

OUR ATTORNEYS

We are seasoned professionals and acknowledged leaders among California employment law practitioners. Our passion and capabilities are what help us win cases and defeat discrimination in the workplace.
