San Diego Employment Lawyer and Labor Law Attorney

We have been dealing with Labor and Employment law issues for decades. We have dealt with these issues not only for clients, but for friends. As a result, we represent both employers and employees. Although some people wrongfully believe this is not a good idea, we think it is a great one.

Representing employers, we know what employees can say and do, what to expect and what surprises can be in store. Representing employees, we have a deeper understanding of what they feel, what bothers them, and why they feel betrayed.

What we have learned from each side has helped us become much better Labor and Employment lawyers because we have a deeper understanding of the needs and requirements of both employers and employees. Nothing beats experience; especially when you are at a Labor Board hearing and there is no time to prepare an answer for a question you didn’t anticipate.California’s Labor and Employment laws make this a very hard state in which to conduct business, which is why a Labor and Employment lawyer should be considered an integral member of your team

Although people are only supposed to collect unemployment in California if they are fired, we witnessed a recent case scenario where a rogue employee destroyed a company’s infrastructure, lied to the employer, stole from him, and later resigned. The Labor Board decided to ignore the resignation and approve unemployment, which the employer then would have to pay for. We were hired to appeal this case. As an employer, do you think you should know at least ‘one’ Labor and Employment lawyer? It’s safe to know your situation before you end up in front of the Labor Board …by then it’s often too late.The best way to prevent disasters in this dangerous area of law is to meet with us in advance of an explosion.
