I dedicate my practice to defending employers against wage and hour disputes, including Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) and class action matters, and claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, employee misclassifications, independent contractor disputes, meal and rest breaks, off-the-clock work, failure-to-pay, and wrongful termination in single and multi-plaintiff/defendant matters.
In addition to my litigation experience, I advise clients on employment policies and practices, including review of separation agreements, employee handbooks, and meal and rest period policies and waivers. I also draft notices of employee privacy rights and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) memorandums for PAGA and class action matters. I assist clients with disciplinary actions and investigations, conduct employment practices reviews, and wage and hour exposure analyses and calculations.
Understanding PAGA and wage and hour lawsuits is crucial for employers—especially those in California—to manage financial risks. Employers need to know how civil penalties are determined and the role of “aggrieved employees” who represent others in these cases. As the law in this field continues to evolve, employers need counsel who adapts to developments in the law in order to better position themselves to manage such risks.
