Labor and Employment Litigation

With an ever-expanding array of statutes, regulations, court decisions, and administrative rulings, and the day-to-day process of managing disparate work forces, California employers face a daunting exposure to claims and liability. Over twenty of Burke, Williams & Sorensen’s lawyers dedicate all or a substantial part of their practice to the prevention of such claims and, when necessary, to the litigation of labor and employment disputes. The list of potential employer/employee-related claims is long and getting longer. Burke’s team of labor and employment litigators have handled virtually every type of employment litigation, including wrongful termination, age, race, or gender discrimination, harassment and retaliation, whistleblower claims, violation of privacy, workplace violence, and bullying claims arising from social media, workplace investigations, wage-and-hour disputes, family medical leave, ADA claims, and disability discrimination.

Burke’s employment litigation lawyers have extensive experience in state and federal trial courts, in appellate courts, and in a wide range of administrative tribunals. In addition to individual cases, our labor and employment litigators have successfully defended numerous state and federal employee class actions.
