All California employees and employers have certain employment rights and obligations granted to them by state and federal law. When these laws have been violated, the help of an experienced employment-labor law attorney may be needed. As COVID-19 was classified as a pandemic, with growing anxieties, it is incumbent upon employers to be vigilant against workplace discrimination, harassment and retaliation. For the past 30 years, I have practiced exclusively in the area of employment-labor law, and I have helped both employees and small businesses handle employment-related matters involving:

  • wage and compensation claims (minimum wage; meal & rest breaks; vacation time; expense reimbursements; overtime pay;
  • payroll deductions
  • independent contractor vs. employee status
  • paid sick leave
  • unemployment and disability insurance
  • 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
  • and more

I have also:

  • prepared, reviewed, and revised employee handbooks, and written policies regarding sexual harassment, workplace discrimination and more
  • drafted employment, independent contractor, severance, and settlement agreements
  • handled grievance arbitration, mediation, and contract (collective bargaining agreements) negotiations.

If you ever have any questions regarding any employment or labor-related matter, please contact me at (916) 333-4653 or for a FREE confidential consultation.
