OUR WORK WITH EMPLOYERS

In Los Angeles County, it is not uncommon to see 100 lawsuits filed weekly against employers for alleged unlawful discrimination or retaliation, often both in the same complaint. One could say that unless a business knows and applies the important basics in preventing such expensive and time-consuming legal claims, it is only a matter of time before that company is hit with one. The critical battle line in such cases is very often whether the employer can demonstrate that it actually and sincerely made the adverse decision for a legitimate business reason, not the supposed discriminatory or retaliatory one. For attorney assistance on proper and necessary documentation of personnel management matters, please contact attorneys Tim Bowles, Cindy Bamforth, or Helena Kobrin, all of whom are known and respected as some of the top employment attorneys California has to offer.

There is very little more precious to an individual than his or her employment. For management and personnel directors facing operational and economic downturns, there is probably very little more difficult than ending a productive worker’s relationship when the company simply can no longer afford to carry that position. Handling that final meeting with a departing employee can be a manager’s diplomatic challenge akin to negotiating the end of a marriage or a major international conflict.

Faced with the intense personal pride a person commonly derives from gainful employment, managers can fumble a layoff by either being too personal with, or too coldly removed from, the outgoing employee in the transition. Where the manager fails to walk the fine line of credibly conveying the economic realities that have forced the layoff decision while appropriately acknowledging the departing individual’s worth, that manager may be deeply motivating that worker to find some ground for a large legal claim to “get even.”

Layoffs of a significant percentage of a company’s workforce raise the stakes and probability that one or more suits may follow. It is thus important for a company facing such transition to plan carefully to reduce the chances of such wrongful termination and discrimination allegations to as near-zero as possible. Experienced labor counsel by Bowles Law attorneys can be vital in guiding management through this often very delicate task.
