As a California employer, you understand that issues may arise in the workplace that cause disagreements between you and one or more of your employees. The goal is to resolve these problems as fairly and swiftly as possible. That is not always possible, however, especially if a worker files a lawsuit against you, or you decide that litigation is necessary because of a specific problem, such as a former worker giving away (or selling) your trade secrets.
There are numerous issues that could land you in court because of an employee’s legal claim. These cases often involve allegations of discrimination or harassment in the workplace, wrongful termination or class action lawsuits regarding wage or hour disputes. Depending on the issue, the case might be heard in a state or federal court.
Protect your interests and defend your rights when facing litigation
In some cases, you may not even have to step foot in a courtroom to resolve the problem. Alternative dispute resolution options, such as mediation or arbitration, may be a less confrontational way to find a reasonable solution to a workplace problem. If litigation is necessary, it’s best to act alongside an attorney who is well-versed in California employment laws.
