Navigating employment issues in California today can be extremely tricky for a business. There is a slew of laws out there, many of which are employee friendly (and employer unfriendly). Meanwhile, the day-to-day realities of running a business, like marketing, financing, and product development, can often distract an employer from focusing on their most valuable asset–––their employees.
It doesn’t have to be stressful. Let ADLI‘s employment practice provide you with guidance to help your business follow the law, while simultaneously maintaining a positive workplace culture. Our team advises employers in a range of issues pertaining to the employment relationship, including but not limited to: preparation and implementation of employment (or separation) paperwork; avoiding harassment and other forms of unlawful discrimination; following a leave of absence and disability accommodation obligations; and compliance with federal, state, and local labor laws and regulations.
If you have been sued by an individual or are facing a violation asserted by a government agency, ADLI will litigate on your behalf to reach the best possible outcome for you. We have experience representing employers of all industries in both single-plaintiff cases and representative actions, ranging from commonplace wage and hour claims to wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims. Our team generally focuses on early settlement through informal discussions or alternative dispute resolution, but we are also willing to fight zealously through the filing of dispositive motions, advancing of cross-claims against the employee, and presenting a strong defense at trial.
Here at ADLI, we are in the employer’s corner. Please reach out to see how our attorneys and staff can help you and your business conquer its employment issues.
