Services from California Employer Defense Attorneys
Tailored to Your Needs

Thorough Knowledge and Experience with Class Action, PAGA, and Wage and Hour Defense

The Law Offices of Susan A. Rodriguez, APC specialize in defending class action employment lawsuits as well as litigation under California’s Private Attorneys General Act and wage and hour laws.

Employment Class and Collective Action Defense

Class and collective employment actions are becoming more common in California due to increased regulation of the employment relationship at the state and local levels. These lawsuits require an aggressive defense by an attorney experienced in legal theories often pursued by plaintiffs in wage and hour, equal pay, discrimination and terminal wage claims.

PAGA Defense

California’s PAGA allows employees to bring private lawsuits against their employers for allegedly violating various provisions of the state’s Labor Code. Because the nature of these claims runs the gamut, deep experience in state labor and employment litigation necessarily underlies a successful defense.

General Employment Defense

Many California employers struggle to achieve and retain compliance under federal and state employment laws. Working with experienced California employer defense attorneys can help.

Wage and Hour Claim Defense

Lawsuits claiming wage and hour violations — relating to topics such as local minimum wage , pay stub errors, tips, overtime and breaks — are burgeoning in California. As cities augment local pay regulations, the Golden State’s legal landscape has become increasingly difficult for employers to navigate without the assistance of an experienced employer lawyer in California.

A California Employer Defense Law Firm Focused on Your Legal Needs

In addition to class action, PAGA and wage and hour defense, Susan and her associates serve California employer clients with employment law matters like these:

  • Harassment and discrimination, including reasonable accommodation and pregnancy disability leave.
  • Employee theft and trade secret misappropriation.
  • California DFEH complaints and federal EEOC charges.
  • Wrongful termination and retaliation.
  • Specialized workers’ compensation matters, such as retaliation claims and serious and willful misconduct.

The experienced California employer attorneys at the Law Offices of Susan A. Rodriguez, APC have helped employers navigate all areas of federal and California employment law, from hiring and recruitment practices through mass layoffs, final wages and Cal-COBRA.

Susan and her team also lend their business savvy to clients, integrating legal and business strategy for both business litigation and bankruptcy proceedings.
