PRACTICE AREAS

 

 
Workers' Rights 
We take a collaborative and compassionate approach to our representation of workers as they face some of the worst times of their lives.  We act in your best interests -- sometimes that means streamlining a matter to a quick resolution so you can move on from a negative experience, and other times it means vigorously litigating your matter.  
We provide the following services: 

 

  • Consulting with workers experiencing retaliation, discrimination or harassment, and guiding them through their internal complaint or grievance process with the goal of protecting them from adverse actions, including termination.
     

  • Representing current and former workers in state and federal courts for claims, such as retaliation, discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation for reporting employer illegal activity, among others.
     

  • Representing employees in wage and hour disputes, such as failure to pay overtime, misclassification as an independent contractor, and failure to provide meal and rest breaks.

 

  • Representing employees in administrative forums, such as the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor Standards and Enforcement, the Merit Systems Protections Board, and Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board.

 

  • Reviewing and negotiating severance packages.

 

  • Reviewing and consulting on employee, contractor, confidentiality, arbitration and other workplace agreements.
