Employers

All too often, employers simply do not understand what their legal responsibilities are concerning employees, and that gets them in trouble. Most employment problems are avoidable if the proper legal counsel is sought in time. With a bit of advance planning, we can help employers avoid most serious problems, and assist when difficulties arise. Too often employers are not aware that seemingly minor violations can turn into big, business threatening financial liabilities. To help avoid such situations in the first place, we can assist with the preparation of Employee Handbooks, and offer guidance in navigating the maze of California Labor Laws.

Employees

In those instances where employers have not made adequate efforts to fulfill their legal obligations to employees in preventing inappropriate conduct or concerning Wage and Hour issues, such as a failure to pay overtime wages or permit regular meal and rest breaks, we can assist harmed employees in recovering what they are rightfully entitled to, including their wages, attorney fees, interest and penalties, or monetary damages where appropriate.
