Common Areas of Employment Problems

Wage and Hour
Harassment
Discrimination
Wage theft can occur in any industry, though commonly found in situations where an employee is an hourly employee.

A major contributor of Wage Theft occurs when an employer misclassifies an employee as either a salaried employee or as an independant contractor.
Workplace harassment may take several forms and can be considered illegal in certain circumstances.
All employees should be free from class-based discrimination while in the workplace and are   protected under state and federal state law.

    The California Labor Code is often touted as being very pro-employee.  This is not a bad thing. California employers have a duty to conform their practices to laws intended to protect workers’ interests. This includes providing employees with proper meal breaks in a timely manner.

What Our Clients Say
  1. "I've worked with Nick on a number of matters. Clients usually don't see it because they often only see the finished product of his representation, but Nick puts in an incredible amount of time and thought into positioning his clients for the best results. This start from the very first time he meets with the client through the end of his representation. It's a critical skill that many plaintiff's attorneys discard because of the time it takes, but something Nick has made a central part of his lawyering for clients."

    ~Drew L.
  2. "I spoke with Nick about some questions regarding my fulltime employment contract and clauses that might impact my side projects. Nick was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and helped navigate the contract and figure out next steps. He also followed up to check up and see if there were any other issues or if I had any other questions. I highly recommend speaking with him!"
