Employment & Labor

The most important part of any company’s business operations is its relationship with its employees. Making sense of the maze of regulations and court decisions is a distinct challenge for today’s employers. Moreover, failure to comply with the law can have a profound effect on the successful operation of a business. Clifford & Brown’s employment practice group advises employers in all aspects of employment management and litigation.

Our clients include companies having thousands of employees to small business start-ups. The firm provides guidance and advice on a variety of matters, including:


  • Employee Handbooks
  • Sexual harassment policies
  • Substance Abuse policies and programs
  • Internet/e-mail usage policies
  • Separation agreements
  • Employee arbitration agreements
  • Executive Compensation Agreements
  • Independent contractor agreements
  • Wrongful termination
  • Harassment and discrimination
  • Wage and hour
  • Public Sector Employee Claims
  • Disability access and accommodation
  • Unfair competition and trade secrets
  • Workplace privacy
  • Workplace violence


In situations where employment disputes cannot be resolved informally, Clifford & Brown is prepared to litigate in both state and federal court to protect our clients’ interests. We also have extensive and successful experience before a wide variety of administrative agencies such as the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, California Labor Commissioner’s office, and the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
