Alejandro focuses on all stages of employment litigation, including single plaintiff, class, and PAGA actions.
I focus my practice on complex employment and traditional labor matters. I defend employers in litigation involving claims of employment discrimination, retaliation, wrongful discharge, harassment, and wage and hour violations. I have extensive experience representing clients with matters before administrative agencies, including the DFEH, EEOC, DOL, and DLSE. Clients also rely on my considerable experience to handle matters involving California Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) violations. I have successfully negotiated and prepared motions for approval of PAGA settlements for clients in various industries.
In addition to counseling clients with traditional employment matters, I provide advice and counsel through the creation of employee policies and management training materials. I have extensive experience creating employee handbooks and drafting policies in compliance with state and federal laws. I also participate in union bargaining sessions and draft agreement negotiations for clients.
As economic times worsen and reductions in the workplace become necessary, employers will need to partner with counsel to anticipate potential exposure and remediate issues that have arisen. California courts continue to adopt employee-friendly interpretations of labor laws and legislative bodies continue to enact laws in favor of employees. The time to act is now.
