California has more employees than any other state. And that number is projected to grow by nearly 40% by 2025.
The Golden State is a global hub for technology, biotech, arts and entertainment, agriculture and green energy. It’s also home to employee-friendly courts, aggressive administrative agencies and a vast and unique body of employment laws and regulations.
Obscure state and municipal laws further complicate areas of employment that already require watchful attention—such as pay and wages, discrimination and harassment, employee leave and reductions in workforce.
And incentives for whistleblowers and employee-led lawsuits and class actions heighten the risk for employers.
Our dedicated team of labor and employment attorneys in California guide our clients through this maze of laws so they can capitalize on the state’s abundant opportunities.
