We Defend Southern California Employers And Help Them Prevent Employment Conflicts
The lawyers of Stratton & Green, ALC, are veterans in the field of employment law, with a longtime and robust practice in employment defense. We regularly provide an effective and result-oriented defense to our employer clients who are faced with employee claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation or labor violations.
We also provide “an ounce of prevention” to employers through regulatory training and policy development to help comply with employment laws, properly respond to employee complaints and avoid expensive lawsuits.
Protecting Businesses From Employee Lawsuits And Complaints
If a current or former employee has made an employment claim against your business, you need answers. How serious is the claim? Does it have any merit? What can you do to limit your exposure to liability? Should you defend the claim at trial or try to settle it out of court? At the law firm of Stratton & Green, ALC, our San Diego employment defense attorneys can answer your questions and advise you on how to proceed. Both of our managing partners have extensive employment law backgrounds, and we draw on that experience to defend employers against all types of claims:
- Employment discrimination (race, ethnicity, religion, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy)
- Sexual harassment and hostile work environment
- Whistleblower retaliation
- Wrongful termination
- Wage and hour claims such as unpaid overtime
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) claims
- Americans With Disabilities Act claims (failure to make reasonable accommodations)
Our firm defends employers against lawsuits, including class actions, and advises them on affirmative steps they can take to reduce their risks. Our attorneys are committed to resolving employment defense matters in an efficient and cost-effective manner, enabling us to provide quality legal representation to small and mid-sized businesses that do not have large litigation budgets.
Proactive Training And Preventive Employment Law
Our firm is committed to helping employers maintain a productive workforce and provide a safe work environment while also reducing their liability to claims by employees. We assist employer clients through various preventive measures, including regulatory compliance training on California and federal employment and labor laws, creation of employment policies and manuals, pre-termination counseling and alternatives to litigation.
