Employment

With a solid understanding of how businesses should operate, Wendel Rosen's employment group attorneys bring a responsive and problem-solving approach to the businesses that turn to them for guidance. Lawyers in the group help clients with policy planning, contract drafting and negotiating, and management training aspects of employee relations, as well as litigation matters.

Any company that has even a single employee is exposed to employment issues. Clients of the practice have included homebuilders, employment staffing companies, product manufacturers, and dealership franchises, to name a few. While we have done work with companies large and small, many mid-sized businesses appreciate the value offered by our practical approach to these types of issues.

Here's a sample of matters typically undertaken by the group:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Discrimination and harassment claims
  • Wage and hour matters
  • Employment contracts and nondisclosure agreements
  • Severance and separation agreements
  • Reduction in force
  • Employee benefit plans
  • Leaves (military, family, etc.) provisions and compliance
  • Employee discipline matters
  • Collective bargaining and National Labor Relations Board
  • Occupational Safety & Health Administration
  • Americans with Disabilities Act provisions and compliance
  • Unfair business practices and competition matters
  • ERISA and COBRA compliance and fiduciary obligations


The firm's employment lawyers frequently assist client companies by training management on employment issues, assisting with the development of personnel policies and handbooks, and providing diversity training.

In addition to successful courtroom advocacy at the trial and appellate levels, the firm is also experienced appearing before administrative and regulatory bodies on behalf of employers, including the California Labor Commissioner, California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Anti-Sexual Harassment Compliance Courses

As of January 1, 2006, Anti-Sexual Harassment Training is required by law for supervisors at companies with 50 or more employees.  This training must be renewed every two years. Consider hiring David Goldman to present the new guidelines to your company. Their presentations can easily be brought to your offices. The training includes a PowerPoint presentation and written handouts to meet the requirements of the law.
