See below for a brief overview of our firm’s main practice areas, or click on any topic for more detailed information.
Not all companies are large enough to have their own human resources department; many businesses cannot even afford to have a single position devoted to HR needs. Yet except for the smallest companies with only a handful of employees, all businesses are subject to the same laws, rules, regulations and demands for compliance, whether they are a small, local business or a Fortune 500 multinational. The attorneys at Coast Employment Law can provide the kind of targeted assistance you need to stay on top of employment matters in a cost-effective, efficient manner. From policy development and supervisor training to alternative dispute resolution and litigation, we provide the help you need to establish your employment practices on solid ground.
Our employment-related legal assistance for employers encompasses all of the following matters:
- Custom Employee Handbooks
- Employee Contracts
- Employee Discipline
- Leave of Absence
- Hiring and Firing
- Discrimination Defense
- Employer Contracts
- Wage and Hour Issues
- Wage and Hour Laws and Regulations

Preventive law is the philosophy driving the law practice at Coast Employment Law. As a business owner, your focus should be on the core functions of your enterprise and not on dealing with employment disputes. While some number of disputes are unavoidable, we believe it is possible (and highly advisable) to avoid the vast majority of disputes through implementation of policies and procedures that prevent them from ever arising in the first place. Let us take a look at your current practices and advise you on how systems may be improved to maintain legal compliance and engage in constructive, cost-effective risk avoidance. We can help in any of the following areas:
- Human Resources Compliance and Personnel Policy Auditing
- Internal Investigation Guidance
- Personnel Policy Development and Maintenance
- Supervisor Training
- Union Avoidance Strategies
Even though California is an “at will” employment state, a host of state and federal employment laws protect workers from termination or any other unfavorable job action for a variety of reasons. If you believe your rights to fair pay or fair treatment have been violated, contact our office for a free case evaluation. We will work with your employer to resolve the matter or pursue your claim before the appropriate administrative agency or in the courts as necessary to protect your rights and ensure that you are treated fairly by your employer. Let us help you with any of the following:
- Employee Rights
- Sexual Harassment
- Wrongful Termination
