Los Angeles Employer Defense Legal Services 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 focus on 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 with vast experience defending legal theories often pursued by plaintiffs in wage and hour, equal pay, discrimination and terminal wage claims.

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 growing 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.

PAGA Defense

California’s PAGA allows employees to bring private lawsuits against their employers for alleged violations of the state’s Labor Code.  Because the nature of these claims runs the gamut, Susan’s team offers deep experience in state labor and employment litigation to create a successful defense on your behalf.
