Our San Diego small business lawyer understands that local business owners are the lifeblood of many local economies. With undying determination and optimism, they dedicate their time and resources to growing their companies.

Yet, in the process of building a company, it is easy to overlook the details concerning many aspects of employment law. From our San Diego law office, we can help address all of your employment legal issues, including:

Defending against employment lawsuits : A successful legal defense relies on a swift and knowledgeable response to complaints, as well as an in-depth understanding of California and federal employment law. We handle sexual harassment, retaliation and discrimination defense for employers. In addition, we have extensive experience in the appellate courts helping employers with appeals.

Small business employment law : Whether you are a veteran small business owner or new to the industry, employment law compliance matters should be at the top of your to-do list. We can provide you with legal counseling, compliance review, training and defense.

We provide entertaining, informative, sexual harassment training and advise small businesses on issues such as discipline, termination, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wages, overtime and leaves of absences.

Discipline and leave issues : Questions surrounding whether an employee should be disciplined or terminated can be a legal minefield. We can help guide and counsel you so you can avoid the danger of frivolous lawsuits.

Managing leaves of absence : State and federal law mandate certain leaves of absence for some employees. However, small businesses may not be subject to the full weight of these laws. We can let you know what your legal obligations are.

Preventing and responding to complaints : A decisive resolution to an employee complaint can go a long way toward limiting damages, preventing future complaints and minimizing the interruption to your business operations. We can let you know the best to way to proceed.

Disputes over non-compete agreements : We defend employers in litigation related to breaches of non-compete or non-competition agreements in California.

Labor commission proceedings for overtime and penalties : Resolving complaints brought before the labor commissioner can help business owners save the time and expense required in litigation. We will help guide you through this process.
