When your company has the right pieces in place, employees and the company have clear expectations for performance, and you have systems for correcting performance and, where necessary, for terminating employment. In the event an employee disagrees with the company’s actions, whether informally or through litigation, or the company needs to take legal action to protect itself from employee or former employee misconduct, the right policies and procedures also provide the company with a roadmap for litigation.

California and federal wage and hour laws create a host of pitfalls for the unwary and well intentioned employer. We defend employers from claims for overtime, unpaid wages and unpaid meal periods in both single plaintiff and class action complaints. We also regularly advocate for our clients before the Employment Development Division in audits or other claims related to mischaracterization of exempt employees, and in front of the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement in defense of claims for unpaid wages.
