Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims distract employees, can cause tension and low morale among them, and ultimately harm productivity. In some instances, they can affect the company’s reputation.
We help clients minimize these negative effects on the workplace by guiding them through the process of handling of claims by current employees, including initial response, investigation, and employee communications, and defending against claims made by former employees. We partner with our clients to define the objective, which can range from reaching an expeditious resolution to eliminate the distraction, or providing the strongest, most vigorous defense. The firm defends these claims and lawsuits before administrative agencies such as the EEOC and DFEH, and in state and federal courts.
