Competent litigation support
A Los Angeles Superior Court Judge has estimated some 20% – one fifth – of all lawsuits coming before him were employment law-related. This statistic is unsurprising when one considers the extensive employee rights granted by state and federal employment law. While employer misconduct certainly can and does occur, disgruntled employees with no actual or highly questionable claims often turn to the courts seeking retribution and ill-gained profit.
Federal and state anti-discrimination laws protect employees from termination and other adverse workplace consequences based on factors unrelated to their ability and performance. Human resources executives must be able to distinguish between valid operations-based grounds for personnel decisions and those that cross the line into an employer’s unlawful conduct.
When facing employment litigation, choosing the right legal counsel is crucial. Bowles Law, a group of specialists amongst the most expert employment lawyers Pasadena has to offer, represents 100 years of combined civil court success. Dedicated to safeguarding employers, we deliver aggressive, results-oriented employer defense intended to reach a favorable, rapid outcome in each case.
We believe in highly responsive service, particularly during the stress of litigation. Accordingly, we respond rapidly to client communications and provide a level of care and attention unavailable from larger firms.
Guiding you through your legal requirements
We also counsel management on preventative measures against future lawsuits. These include implementation of lawful workplace policies for stable growth, manager training on employment law basics, and customized employee handbooks.
To reduce the potential for employee claims as much as possible, employers should take effective measures to prevent unlawful workplace conduct. Employers should also always promptly and thoroughly investigate all complaints of discrimination, harassment or retaliation and take effective remedial action as necessary. Company managers must always act as part of the solution to any such claim and, whether out of neglect or other ill-advised reaction, never place themselves in a position where they can be perceived as part of the problem.
Over the past 20 years and more, the attorneys at Bowles Law have developed a passion for helping businesses develop strong legal basics for sound growth. Our legal services now include educational steps, effective counseling on positive resolution of disputes and result-oriented litigation defense.
Bowles Law was founded by Timothy Bowles, who ranks as a highly experienced employer attorney Los Angeles depends on. He is an “AV Preeminent” rated attorney—the highest possible ranking—based on his outstanding employment law knowledge, experience and achievements. Mr. Bowles’ legal skills have also been rated as “Superb” by the legal website Avvo. This firm provides litigation defense against:
- Discrimination (race, religion, age, sex, pregnancy, disability and others)
- Wrongful termination
- Unpaid wages and other compensation matters
This firm defends employers daily on lawsuits for, you name it, (alleged) discrimination, (purported) retaliation, (supposed) harassment, (asserted) unpaid wages or overtime, and just about every other workplace accusation imaginable. More common than not, management’s inappropriate or illegal behavior is not the source of such court battles. Rather, suits often generate and grow from company failures: I) to have and follow simple, written policy; and II) to promptly and fairly document workplace misconduct and its resolution.
For the actions employers can take to avoid this nightmare scenario, including access to our workplace forms and model personnel handbooks, please feel free to contact one of our firm’s attorneys.
