Employment Discrimination, Harassment and Reasonable Accommodation
Employers continue to face significant monetary and reputational exposure from claims of discrimination and harassment. Our lawyers are experienced at getting to the bottom of the facts and resolving such cases—and fighting them aggressively when needed. We have successfully defended such claims in both jury trials and arbitrations, and have regularly compelled cases to arbitration. We also partner with our clients' human resources and communications teams to deal with the broader implications of system or high-exposure claims. We also have among the most experienced disability discrimination lawyers in the field. Our lawyers routinely handle disability discrimination issues at every stage: from counseling about reasonable accommodation; to EEOC and DFEH charges; through all aspects of discovery, trial, and appeal. Our lawyers have briefed disability discrimination issues before various appellate courts, including the US Supreme Court.
