Sheppard Mullin's Labor & Employment practice covers the broad range of labor and employment counseling, litigation and dispute resolution, and traditional labor. We advise clients regarding their domestic and international employment issues, and we provide counseling to employers on issues such as hiring, discipline, termination, compensation, leaves of absence, and severance, among others. Our lawyers defend employers in litigation involving wage/hour issues, wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, employee raiding, trade secrets, and other related matters. We also specialize in handling high stakes “bet-the-company” class actions, including wage/hour and discrimination cases. One of our partners literally wrote the book on wage/hour law that is used by clients and competitors alike.
We have particular expertise in the wage and hour area and are regularly asked to defend employers in wage and hour litigation. Employers rely on us to guide them through the labyrinth of rules in the wage and hour arena. We help employers conduct internal audits and provide clients with day-to-day advice regarding wage and hour compliance and remain current on all changes to the wage and hour laws and keeps clients apprised of new developments in this area.
