Our Employment Group provides advice and counsel day-in and day-out for clients in sectors including banking, financial services, technology, hospitality, health care, insurance, construction and architecture and design. We help clients navigate the technical morass of employment laws in California to make sound, low-risk business decisions related to their workforce.

For new startups or fast-growth transitioning companies, our focus is on integrated, forward-looking best practices and risk management. We work closely with clients to develop and implement policies and procedures compliant with state law yet fitted to each client’s unique needs and concerns. We provide onsite training for managers, preparing them to anticipate and handle issues related to sexual harassment, employees with disabilities, wage and hour disputes and the unpredictable one-offs arising every day.

We stress prevention and early intervention to avoid costly employment disputes so that our clients may focus on business, not distracting and expensive legal controversies.

But if disputes arise, our employment litigation group regularly handles routine single-plaintiff cases, class action litigation and administrative proceedings involving discrimination, wrongful termination, wage and hour violations, misclassification, and a variety of related claims involving Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the WARN Act, and many other federal and state laws.

And if principle or circumstance requires, Severson has true trial lawyers, experienced, expert and equipped. There is simply no firm better able to try a case to verdict in the courts of California.

This is a full-service Employment Law Group, and that is what you need.
