Employment Law

Effective legal representation for businesses and employers

Employment Law Attorneys

At Lerner & Weiss, our employment law attorneys will represent you in all employment related issues facing your business. This could mean allegations of misconduct by your current and former employees. There are also times when, as an employer, you may need to institute litigation against former employees for violations of certain contract provisions.

We recognize that litigation is time-consuming and emotionally draining. We strive to take that burden off of your shoulders and put it on ours as we work tirelessly to resolve your issues. This will allow you to continue doing the job of keeping your business up and running.

California Employment Lawyers for Employers

Our employment lawyers have significant experience preparing employment contracts, policies, handbooks and manuals for businesses in compliance with all relevant local, state and federal laws as well as industry specific regulations.

Our goal is to put mechanisms in place to prevent expensive and time-consuming employment litigation whenever possible.

Aggressive Defense of Employers’ Rights

No matter how carefully your employment contracts, handbooks and training manuals are prepared, allegations of misconduct by current or former employees is always a real possibility.

We are a full-service employer defense law firm that handles all types of litigation arising from the employer / employee relationship. We have successfully defended clients in a variety of employee initiated matters, including:

  • Workers’ Compensation.
  • Wage and Hour.
  • Discrimination.
  • Wrongful Termination.
  • Sexual Harassment.
  • Whistle-blower.

  • Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress.
  • Unfair Labor Practices.

We thoroughly investigate all allegations and represent our clients at administrative hearings, arbitration or trial. We also use our creativity and work to solve issues in a common sense way in an effort to avoid litigation when possible.

Employer Generated Lawsuits Against Former Employees

Unfortunately, as an employer, you may discover that present or former employees have violated one or more provisions in their employment contracts.

In these situations, litigation is often required to assert your rights as an employer. Our employer rights attorneys can help you in matters related to:

  • Trade Secrets. Protection of your intellectual property often requires intensive and complex investigation before filing an infringement law suit.
  • Non-compete. Enforcement of non-compete provisions in employment contracts. Some courts treat these more favorably than others.
  • Employee Misconduct. Investigation into allegations that one or more of your employees has engaged in workplace violations including employee misconduct such as harassment, violence or theft.

At Lerner & Weiss, we treat you as though you are our partner. We recognize that each case has its own personal individual circumstances and work to represent you from a level of understanding.

Not only do our employment lawyers bring decades of experience successfully asserting and defending employers’ rights to the table, but we can also provide you with the individualized attention your case deserves.
