As business litigation attorneys, the lawyers at Rodarakis & Sousa often assist and advise California employers regarding their rights and legal obligations under both State and Federal labor law. We help employers to understand and comply with the complex and often-misunderstood State and Federal statutes and regulations governing the employment relationship. We provide assistance to employers in implementing sensible policies and procedures, drafting or revising written employment manuals, policies or contracts, and offer counseling to clients with disciplinary action and termination decisions. The attorneys at Rodarakis & Sousa also represent employers in defense of wage and hour, discrimination and harassment claims brought by individual employees before State and Federal courts, the California Labor Commissioner, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board. We also represent employers in wage and hour class action cases.
