Employment Law Representation And Advice For Businesses
Understanding and complying with California and federal regulations that govern employment relationships can be challenging. For most small and midsized businesses, it is often not feasible to have an internal human resources department. Sound legal advice, however, can avoid litigation and resolve complaints in a timely manner.
At Duggan McHugh Law Corporation, we partner with Northern California private and public sector employers to provide advice and representation on legal standards governing modern workplaces. We represent employers before federal and California administrative agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and the Labor Commissioner. We are also skilled at litigating cases in both California and federal courts through trial and appeals.
