All California employers and employees are afforded certain employment rights and obligations pursuant to state and federal laws. Sometimes, it becomes difficult to know and understand these laws and to recognize when certain conduct may be wrongful. At times, the help of an experienced employment law attorney may be needed. With anxieties growing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is incumbent upon all employers and employees to be vigilant against workplace discrimination, harassment and retaliation. For the past 30 years, I practice exclusively in the area of employment law assisting small business owners and employees in matters involving:

  • Labor Commissioner wage and compensation claims (minimum wage; overtime pay; meal & rest breaks; vacation time; expense reimbursements; payroll deductions)
  • classifying status of independent contractor vs. employees
  • paid sick leave
  • unemployment and disability insurance benefits
  • paid family leave
  • pregnancy disability leave
  • new parent leave
  • pregnancy & maternity discrimination
  • equal pay
  • workplace discrimination
  • sexual harassment
  • retaliation
  • wrongful termination
  • whistleblowers
  • unfair labor practices under the National Labor Relations Act
  • applications for disability and industrial disability retirement benefits with CalPERS, CalSTRS & SCERS

I also:

  • prepare, review, and revise employee handbooks, and written policies regarding sexual harassment, workplace discrimination and more
  • draft employment, independent contractor, severance, and settlement agreements
  • handle grievance arbitration, mediation, and contract (collective bargaining agreements) negotiations.
  • provide California mandated Sexual harassment training
