The current business reality for employers is that regardless of a company’s compliance with state and federal employment laws, disagreements will arise between them and employees. Nevers Palazzo attorneys are well schooled in the prevailing state and federal employment laws and administrative requirements. We skillfully use the litigation process as a tool to achieve the best possible outcome for clients. Our extensive employment litigation experience includes these areas and claims:

  • Employment contracts
  • Independent contractors and contingent workforce
  • Wage and hour claims (individual, PAGA, and class actions)
  • Wrongful termination
  • Discrimination and retaliation
  • Sexual harassment and other forms of harassment
  • Unfair labor practices
  • Trade secrets
  • Workplace privacy
  • Whistleblower
  • Workplace safety and health violations

Employment actions can have ramifications on workplace morale, productivity and profitability. Throughout the dispute resolution process, we remain sensitive to managing the potential wide-ranging effects of employer-employee disputes.

Experienced in the numerous and strictly enforced worker protection laws that make California one of the nation’s most worker-friendly states, we protect employers’ interests in these state and federal courts and administrative agencies:

  • California state courts
  • Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE)
  • Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH)
  • Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board
  • California Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board (OSHAB)
  • Federal courts
  • United States Department of Labor (DOL)
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
  • National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)

Nevers Palazzo’s business attorneys take a proactive approach to attacking issues. They often act as business advisors, something unique for attorneys, which is why my clients and I enjoy working with them.
