While Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P.'s attorneys assist clients with personnel management planning (e.g., employment, non-disclosure and severance agreements, handbooks, etc.), keep them abreast of relevant legal developments, and provide counsel during critical decision making, our greatest strength is the firm's deep litigation and trial experience aiding our clients in class action and other complex litigation before state and federal courts across the nation. We have attorneys experienced in a wide range of employment law litigation, including wage & hour disputes (in particular defense of class action claims involving misclassification, meal & rest breaks, rates of pay and payment documentation claims); discrimination, harassment and retaliation claims (age, gender, race, disability, etc.); wrongful termination; employee status disputes (independent contractor and joint employer); and statutory leave (FMLA and California Family Leave Act).
