When litigation is necessary, we partner with our clients to find cost-effective resolution methods aligned with our client’s goals and needs. We have successfully represented our clients before both federal or state administrative judges and/or agencies on issues such as wage compliance, disability accommodation and leaves of absence, discrimination, retaliation, and union relations. We have represented from sole properties to national and multinational entities in federal and state actions arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the California Labor Code, and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act.
Our approach is unique because we take a holistic approach in trying to solve your problem. K&S’ labor law and tax law experience equips us with a interdisciplinary approach to learning about our clients’ employment issues, their context within the workplace which leads to timely, thoughtful and constructive advice.
