At Murphy Pearson Bradley and Feeney, we understand the ever evolving environment of today's workplace; from social media to workplace bullying to mandatory sick leave policies imposed at both state and local levels, today's employers are faced with an increasingly complicated and uncertain legal landscape. Further complicating matters, employment related litigation has tripled in the last decade and now comprises more than one in every three lawsuits filed. Now more than ever, employers of all sizes need efficient, effective and knowledgeable counsel to help safeguard against unnecessary losses resulting from employment related litigation.
Our Employment Practice Group provides practical advice and guidance on the critical issues facing California's employers: hiring and firing; harassment investigations; leased employees; wage and hour compliance; disability accommodation; mass layoffs and plant closures; contract disputes; and protection of trade secrets. Having worked with many insurance companies throughout the years we have learned to streamline efficiencies and have created a cost effective model.
Murphy, Pearson, Bradley & Feeney's Employment Team has over 30 years of experience defending companies and individuals in employment-related litigation - both in federal and state courts and before administrative agencies. We have grown in tandem with our clients and have represented clients on all claims arising from the workplace, including:
|• allegations of discrimination||• violation of wage and hour laws|
|• breach of contract||• defamation|
|• sexual and racial harassment||• Invasion of privacy|
|• violation of family leave laws||• trade secrets violations|
|• wrongful termination and retaliation||• social media and cyber-bullying|
We draft and review personnel policies, employment manuals, contracts and severance agreements. We provide harassment and discrimination prevention seminars specifically designed to comply with California's newly-enacted training mandate.
When discrimination complaints arise, we guide clients to conduct thorough investigations and take measures necessary to ensure those investigations are handled properly.
