Overview

Employers rely on people to get the job done.  People bring creativity, drive and commitment but also complexity.  We work with employers to minimize disruptions, preserve value and mitigate risk surrounding their most valuable asset, their people.

We have extensive experience representing public and private companies and public entities throughout California and the West.  Clients rely on our counseling, advice, and litigation services to help prosecute trade secret theft, investigate discrimination claims and defending against class actions and wrongful terminations.

Our counseling services help employers avoid or mitigate costly administrative proceedings and litigation.  We help clients proactively review and establish practical and compliant policies and procedures.  We also offer assessment services that often eliminate the threat of a lawsuit and grievances, and establish an effective roadmap for responding to inquiries.

When disputes cannot be resolved informally, our litigators have had considerable success representing employers before mediators, arbitrators, administrative tribunals, and federal and state courts.

Our goal is to empower clients to better comply with pertinent laws and regulations and navigate the complex labyrinth of employment issues they face daily.

What the FFCRA, CARES Act, California’s Shelter-in-Place Orders and Other Relief Measures Mean for California Employers

Originally published on 03.26.2020 | What California Shelter-in-Place and Other Orders Mean for California Employers

Emergency declarations including a California state-wide stay at home orderand a variety of executive and health orders issued from federal, state, county, and city authorities in response to COVID-19 have temporarily changed or suspended a number of requirements for California employers. Sick leave regulations have been altered, paid leave laws are being considered at various levels of government, and the California WARN Act requirements have been relaxed. Additionally, a number of wage and hour, leave, and discrimination issues have arisen as companies adjust to telecommuting, social distancing, quarantine, and shelter-in-place practices implemented in their own businesses as well as the businesses of their suppliers and customers.

Our attorneys are monitoring the legal development associated with public authorities’ response to COVID-19 and its spread, and are ready to provide advice and counsel to clients struggling to navigate the rapidly changing landscape. If you have any questions about employment related issues connected with the public response to COVID-19, please contact us.
