Representing Employers In Employment Law Matters
At my San Mateo, California, law firm, I represent clients in a variety of employment law matters. Most of this work involves representing small businesses that find themselves embroiled in disputes with their employees. My job in such matters is to develop ways to resolve problems in the most efficient and effective manner possible.
My work in this area includes assisting clients with:
- Negotiating and drafting employment contracts
- Handling issues related to noncompetition and other contract disputes
- Defending against employment discrimination claims
- Negotiating with claimants and potential claimants
- Preparing employment handbooks
- Advising clients about state and federal employment laws
I help clients deal with state and federal agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). My approach when handling employment matters is to anticipate problems and help resolve disputes by identifying alternatives that can work for both sides. I am known as a lawyer with the ability to envision and describe options in ways that clients understand.
My clients are sometimes blindsided by discrimination lawsuits or other types of employment-related claims. They may have had no idea that they were violating the law or that the employment contract under discussion failed to list all possibilities. My strategy often involves making repairs and improvements in governing documents to prevent legal problems in the future and negotiating a solution that is acceptable to all sides.
