Straggas Law Group works with its employer clients on a daily basis to provide advice and counseling regarding human resources and personnel management issues, including, pre-hiring practices, hiring, compensation and benefits, discipline, and termination.
Straggas Law Group also works with employer clients who have been targeted with wage and hour class action lawsuits, discrimination and harassment complaints, employee/ independent contractor “mis-designation” claims, and other employment lawsuits and proceedings, whether brought by employees, or government agencies.
We also assist in investigations of pre-litigation claims of discrimination and harassment to ensure preservation of evidence and to assist the employer in creating and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for all employees.
Owning or managing a business in California is challenging. No state has stricter laws and regulations. Every year brings new changes, and new requirements. If an employer makes a mistake, the remedies provided to employees can be very harsh and costly. Claims of sexual harassment are among the most serious claims faced by an employer.
Such cases are prevalent in news accounts, and can be harmful to all persons affected by the alleged misconduct. Straggas Law Group assists in making sure claims are properly investigated and that remedial measures are appropriately implemented where warranted. In the case of litigation, Straggas Law Group works to methodically and appropriately defend the employer’s interest in such cases.
