Human Resources

San Diego Human Resources Lawyers

Starting your business on the right foot means starting it right with your employees. We have experienced and knowledgeable lawyers to support you to fully comply with the human resources policies and practices. Our counselors can take care of these daunting HR forms and procedures for you.

We can start our work from business HR policies, be there for day-to-day advice and also defend you in the court in the event of an employee lawsuit. We can set up or tune up all your HR policies and practices.

Recruitment and selection

We provide direct support and prepare the HR forms for legal compliance, on issues such as:

  • Pre-employment inquiries
  • Job applications
  • Background and reference checks & consents
  • Drug test policy
  • Offer letters

Hiring new employees or contractors

We support you with all the agreements, acknowledgments, job descriptions, forms and notices you need to handle for each of your new employees. We make sure your business has everything it needs:

  • Employee handbooks
  • Employment standard agreements
  • Job descriptions
  • Timesheets and timekeeping procedures
  • Trade secrets or proprietary rights agreements
  • Drug and alcohol testing policy and agreements
  • Arbitration agreements

Day-to-day HR processes

Backed by our counselors, we set up the required records for management and training, and we help you professionally manage your disciplinary and leave policies. We make sure you comply with the latest legislation for the process of employee evaluation and performance review.

Termination and mass layoff

You know your employees will not be with you forever, so you need to be prepared for termination as well. And in the event of a mass layoff, we support your business to avoid legal action.

Our team can help you with:

  • Termination agreement
  • Termination and exit interview checklist
  • Final pay receipt process
  • Final forms and notices given to the employees
  • Communication regarding trade secrets or proprietary rights

Legal representation

Through our services of setting up and tuning up your human resources policies and practices, we mitigate risks as much as possible. However, the risk of lawsuits is always there. Sometimes, you do not even have to do something wrong to get called in court by a current or former employee or by a candidate for one of your vacancies. We are here for those moments too. We provide full representation and litigation services on employment and labor law.

If you have been sued already and need immediate representation, call us right away!
Once we fix the problem, then we can also work on tuning up your HR policies and procedures, to decrease the chance of another employee lawsuit.
