Employment

The Employment practice group offers proactive business and legal strategies to ensure both legal compliance and a productive workforce.

California’s management leaders confront the considerable challenge of complying with employment laws on a daily basis.  Regular changes in California and federal laws continue to expand employee rights and create additional liabilities for employers, requiring businesses and public enterprises to manage human resources more effectively and with greater sensitivity.  When employee-related claims arise, our attorneys  efficiently use the tools of the litigation process to move disputes toward an effective resolution—ideally before they go to trial.

Donahue Fitzgerald’s Employment practice group represents companies and individuals in defense of litigation involving human resources management, employment contracts and employee benefits.  We represent clients in both federal and state courts, as well as before the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The Employment group also offers clients customized supervisor, manager and employee training in all aspects of employment law, including prevention of workplace harassment, discrimination and violence as well as hiring and management issues.
