Employment Law Areas of Practice – Los Angeles & Santa Monica Employment Law Firm

The Cowan Law Firm represents both employers and employees in a wide variety of Employment Law Disputes, including:

Employment Law Class Actions – Generally, actions based on wage & overtime violations, employee / independent contractor misclassification, and discriminatory practices.

Sexual Harassment – Broadly defined under the law, sexual harassment encompasses a large range of conduct ranging from inappropriate comments to physical touching.

Whistleblower Claims – Whistleblower Laws provide protection against retaliatory actions or wrongful termination for employees who step forward to report illegal conduct or wrongdoing in the workplace.

Workplace Discrimination – Discrimination may be subtle or overt, and takes many forms. It is unlawful to discriminate against an employee based on their age (40+ years of age), religion, race, national origin, sexual orientation, gender and disability.

Wrongful Termination – Although California is an at-will work state, retaliatory or discriminatory terminations are actionable. Employers may be held legally liable if the plaintiff can successfully demonstrate, based on the circumstances, that their firing was unlawful.

Additionally, our Santa Monica Employment Attorneys handle WARN Act Cases as well as DFEH (Department of Fair Employment & Housing) and EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) Complaints.

Subject to specific exemptions, the WARN Act (Worker Readjustment and Retraining Notification Act) requires large employers to provide at least 60 days’ notice to employees prior to carrying out a mass layoff or closing a plant.

The DFEH and EEOC oversee allegations of Employment Discrimination and provide specific remedies to individuals whose rights have been violated by their employer.

The Firm also has substantial experience counseling clients (employers and employees) about employment issues, including giving preventative advice, reviewing employment contracts, negotiating severance agreements, and drafting employee handbooks.
