Employment Litigation Defense

Defending Employers in Court Actions

A Los Angeles Superior Court Judge has estimated some 20% – one fifth – of all lawsuits before him were employment-related. This statistic is unsurprising when one considers the extensive employee rights granted by state and federal law and the high emotion that sometimes runs on both sides of a workplace dispute. 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 rightly 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 and Southern California have to offer, represents 100 years of combined civil court success. Dedicated to safeguarding business viability by fair and beneficial workplace relations, 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.
