Employment Litigation

The Klinedinst Employment Litigation group provides its clients with vigorous representation in the place where stakes are the highest: the courtroom.

With a full array of legal services in varied employment topics and issues, our attorneys are experienced representing clients before governmental agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the California Division of Labor Standard’s Labor Commissioner Office, as well as State and Federal courts, including through appeals.

Klinedinst also has extensive experience representing employers in class action lawsuits brought in State and Federal Court.  Because class actions can bring significant risks, our objectives are to quickly analyze potential exposure and develop a strategy with the client to win or to expeditiously resolve claims.

  • Arbitrations
