Employment – HR

California is arguably the worst state in the country to do business in, and our labor laws top the list as to the reasons why.  Small business owners have two basic choices.

  • Relocate outside California (but most can not); or
  • Play by the rules, which are complex, constantly changing, and “balanced” in favor of the employee.  Are we having fun yet?

Most employers make a good faith effort to comply with California’s labor laws, but simply acting in good faith is not a defense to the myriad of fines and penalties that await unsuspecting business owners.

Please note that we only represent employers in disputes with their employees.  If you are an employee with a potential dispute, please contact your local bar association for a referral to an employee rights attorney.  Our representation of employees is limited to:
a) High level executives in employment and severance agreements; and
b) True business partners who may have claims against other partners for breaches of fiduciary duties.
