Employment Law

Wesierski & Zurek’s attorneys have combined decades of experience representing employers in wide-ranging employment litigation, including wrongful termination/constructive discharge, discrimination, retaliation, harassment, wage and hour violations, leave violations and unfair competition claims.

The firm is proud to have handled numerous class actions on behalf of employers for many types of wage and hour claims brought against them as well as discrimination matters and numerous other issues.  The firm has represented successfully small to medium to large companies and helped them navigate this difficult field.

We have successfully litigated employment claims in both state and federal court. Occasionally, we represent plaintiffs.  We have pursued and defended claims before administrative agencies, including the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

We have defended employers in diverse industries such as restaurants, car dealers, staffing agencies and rental companies.

We have spoken at numerous seminars regarding labor claims and have published articles on employment topics.  We also provide preventative legal services to help clients avoid litigation.  For instance, we regularly advise employers regarding workplace issues, including leaves of absence, misconduct, and Labor Code compliance issues.  We also provide training in other areas, such as sexual harassment and discrimination and regularly review and draft employee handbooks.

Wesierski & Zurek is able to provide immediate answers to pressing issues, as well as to successfully focus on longer-term results.  Many cases require quick closure to limit potentially catastrophic damage recoveries, while others need efficient and cost-effective litigation strategies to achieve a positive outcome when the claimants refuse to resolve a claim without extensive litigation.  The Firm has taken many employment cases to trial, and enjoys an enviable string of excellent and defense verdicts in jury and bench trials as well as arbitrations.  Wesierski & Zurek can appropriately staff the case with very knowledgeable and talented attorneys focused on achieving a successful result.
