Cohen/Mainzer provides a wide array of Labor and Employment services, including trial, litigation and arbitration representation in actions involving claims for breach of contract, discrimination (race, gender, ethnicity and disability), “whistleblower” actions, sexual harassment, and wage and hour matters.
In addition, we have represented employers in action against former employees for misappropriation of trade secret information, embezzlement, breach of confidentiality provisions and where enforceable, breach of covenants not to compete.
We have also represented executives in compensation and severance arrangement negotiations.
We also counsel employers, irrespective of size, on the preparation and review of employee handbooks, pre-disciplinary or termination counseling, negotiation of severance packages, reorganizations, reductions in force and plant closings (WARN Act and “BABY” Warn Act), wage and hour issues, and leave laws (FMLA and CFRA). We also conduct in-house seminars on sexual harassment rules and regulations.
