GREATER SF BAY AREA PRACTICE
Employment Contracting, PIP Disputes, Retaliation, NonCompetes
Unlike many attorneys, I provide in-career employee consultations, intervention, document review and strategies for job protection and in anticipation of separations. These projects may also involve an assessment of independent contractor status, misclassifications, disputed temporary & leased employee scenarios and/or unfair business practices.
Employment Discrimination, Harassment, Hostile Work Environment Claims
have prosecuted EEOC, DFEH (Title VII & FEHA) complaints and litigated claims involving age, sex, race, disability, race and gender discrimination. I offer assistance with disability & statutory protected leave scenarios and help in-service employees save their employment relationship. These engagements are the core of my employment practice.
Labor Code Violations, Administrative Hearings, CUIAB
I have been privileged to represent clients at Labor Commissioner (DLSE) hearings, the MSPB, DOL, EEOC and DFEH. In appropriate situations, I will represent my clients at EDD/CUIAB appeals and assist them in fighting for their unemployment insurance benefits.
Understanding Employment Rights, Remedies & Your Options
The laws governing employment rights and disputes are often complex, counterintuitive, and involve considerations of state and federal conflicts, case law, statutes, and a pragmatic view of what works. Knowledge is power; an informed person makes better decisions.
