Labor & Employment

At Schinner & Shain, our labor and employment attorneys support our corporate clients with advice, counseling and litigation services in all aspects of the employment arena, including wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination, classification of independent contractors, family leave compliance, wage and hour compliance, and exemption and versus nonexempt status, as well as other issues relating to the hiring, compensation, promotion and termination of employees.  Our attorneys are available to answer discrete questions, to explain legal requirements such as rights and obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or to work alongside a client’s human relations manager to implement training programs, develop employee handbooks, drug testing plans or termination and severance packages.

Our attorneys represent both employers and employees in disputes before state and federal courts, the California Labor Commission and other administrative agencies, and alternative dispute resolution tribunals.
