A 2014 study conducted by Hiscox Small Business Insurance shows that California companies are 42% more likely to be sued by an employee than the national average. As former business owners and experienced business/corporate lawyers, we know how important it is for companies to avoid disputes whenever possible but to resolve them quickly and effectively whenever they do arise. At Coast Employment Law, our attorneys are well-versed in the multitude of laws at the local, state and federal levels governing every aspect of the employer-employee relationship. We advise and represent employers and employees alike in the full range of federal and California employment law matters.
Dispute avoidance through preventive law
Preventive law may not be a phrase you have heard very often, but it is the philosophy behind our legal practice. Every year labor and employment laws and regulations are added or changed, and our experienced employment lawyers stay on top of the shifting legal landscape in this every-changing field of law. We advise our clients of changes to the law as they occur in the legislature, the courts and the administrative agencies. We take a pro-active approach with our clients to keep them in compliance with the law and avoid disputes before they ever arise. We believe a sound approach to risk avoidance is just good business. When disputes do arise, as they inevitably will, we work hard to resolve the dispute efficiently and cost-effectively, but always with your immediate and long-term interests foremost in mind.
Resolving workplace discrimination and harassment claims
It’s no secret that workplace discrimination, sexual harassment and unfair employment practices do occur. Creating a fair and just workplace involves not only implementing policies and training and ensuring compliance, but also recognizing failures when they do occur and remedying them. When employees have valid, meritorious claims against their employer, we help the worker bring that claim before the proper administrative agency or court, or resolve the dispute directly with the employer.
