Weintraub’s Employment Litigation team defends clients against the full gamut of employment-related claims that employers face. From high stakes wage-and-hour class and representative actions to single-plaintiff claims, our attorneys have a strong track record of results-driven client advocacy. Our team of attorneys has had marked success obtaining favorable verdicts in the courtroom as well as summary judgments and pre-trial dismissals. Weintraub is consistently recognized as one of the region’s top employment litigation law firms.
Our employment litigators are experienced in handling complex wage and hour disputes, pay-related issues, harassment claims, termination cases, misclassification claims, and trade secret disputes in state and federal court. Weintraub attorneys have defended claims related to anti-discrimination and retaliation statutes such as Title VII, the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). Our attorneys always provide critical compliance advice to clients along the way. Our appellate experts are here too when needed. Having successfully handled briefing and oral argument before all manner of appellate courts, from the California Court of Appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, they routinely obtain favorable results for our clients.
Beyond our work in state and federal courts, our attorneys often appear before the full range of governmental agencies and alternative dispute resolution forums. This includes federal agencies such as the Department of Labor (DOL), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). We also regularly defend clients before California agencies like the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR aka the Labor Commissioner), the Employment Development Department (EDD), and the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH).
Weintraub litigators have assisted businesses and executives in most industries, including the banking, agriculture, hospitality, transportation, technology, automotive, and manufacturing sectors. Ultimately, as employment law continues to evolve, it is important to have experienced and effective attorneys on your side who are up-to-date with recent cases and well-versed in the ever-changing employment laws.
