Santa Barbara Employer Defense Lawyers
In years past, employment insurance packages contained policies to cover employer-employee disputes unrelated to wages/compensation. Today, most employment dispute policies must be purchased separately, and many companies do not in order to save on additional insurance costs. If you are involved in employment litigation, a skilled attorney can help you understand and protect your rights.
The law firm of West Corzine, LLP has experience advising and representing employers and individual employees with respect to all aspects of employment litigation. We focus on representing local businesses throughout Ventura County, California, and surrounding areas. With more than 75 years of combined experience, our attorneys use our knowledge of the complicated laws regarding employment relations to obtain cost-efficient resolutions that protect our clients' best interests.
Protecting Your Rights and Interests
Our clients range from small, family-owned businesses with a few employees to manufacturers and other companies with several hundred employees. We prosecute and defend clients in cases involving:
- Discrimination and harassment regarding age, race, disability, gender and sexual orientation
- Wage and hour disputes
- Wrongful termination claims
- Employee benefits
- Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) claims
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) disputes
- Breach of noncompete covenants
- Trade secrets violations
- Privacy, defamation and tortious interference issues
- Intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress in the workplace
- Unemployment and Social Security matters
Where early resolution is possible, we seek a favorable settlement through negotiation. However, we have the ability and experience to take cases before state and federal courts and all administrative bodies. We regularly represent clients before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Workers' Compensation Appeals Boards, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and its state equivalents, unemployment agencies, and other labor or governmental organizations.
We understand the sensitive nature these cases often entail. Using our knowledge of the law and the practicalities of the workplace, we seek the most efficient, cost-effective solution given your unique goals.
