Frequent changes in California and federal laws continue to expand employee rights and create additional liabilities for employers. Our attorneys help employers manage human resources effectively and with sensitivity. We advise management in all aspects of employment law, including employee classification and wage law, discrimination, harassment, medical leaves, policies and handbooks, employment contracts, compensation, discipline, and termination. We proffer customized training for supervisors and managers on topics such as: best practices in hiring, managing employee performance, and preventing workplace harassment. When employee-related claims arise, our attorneys efficiently use the tools of the litigation process to move disputes toward an effective resolution—ideally before they go to trial.
