Nossaman’s Employment attorneys have extensive experience representing employers throughout California, as well as meeting their out-of-state needs. Our attorneys provide counseling, advice, and litigation services to private and public companies and public entities on a broad array of employment and labor related matters, including:
- Wage and hour
- Unfair competition/trade secrets
- Wrongful terminations
- Executive employment agreements and benefits
- Leave laws
- Reductions in force/Warn Act
- Record retention
- Union/employer relations
We are qualified and experienced trainers for State mandated sexual harassment prevention training and also provide training on current topics to our clients.
The scope of our representation runs the full gamut from prosecuting employee theft to defending discrimination claims (whether based on age, gender, national origin, religion, or disability) to defending wage and hour class actions and wrongful terminations in violation of public policy. We also have been on the front line of e-discovery and are well prepared to counsel our clients on how to address and control related issues.
Our in-depth knowledge of employment laws and personal commitment distinguishes our employment practice. The Employment Practice Group leverages this expertise to develop creative solutions to our clients’ problems, while anticipating and avoiding potentially damaging situations. Our counseling services help employers avoid or mitigate costly administrative proceedings and litigation by proactively reviewing and establishing policies and procedures to be consistently applied in the workplace. Our training workshops and seminars empower our clients to better comply with pertinent laws and regulations and navigate the complex labyrinth of employment issues they face daily.
We also offer investigation and assessment services that often eliminate the threat of a lawsuit and grievances, and give our clients an effective roadmap for responding to inquiries. However, when disputes cannot be resolved informally, Nossaman has substantial success representing employers before mediators, arbitrators, administrative tribunals, and federal and state courts.
