Labor & Employment

Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.

Theodore Roosevelt


Supporting The Business of Relationships

In California, an understanding of the ever-changing landscape of employment laws and regulations is critical for both employers and employees alike. Recognizing the importance of understanding both sides of the employment relationship, TMK is uniquely positioned to provide both employer-side and employee-side representation. From actions before the EEOC, DFEH, and DLSE to Employee Stock Option Plans and Executive Compensation, TMK is consistently proven to be a leader in legal counseling and employment-related litigation.

Although disputes sometimes cannot be avoided, TMK also regularly counsels and advises employers on compliance with federal, state and local employment laws with the goal of increasing workplace efficiency and preventing potentially disruptive litigation. Moreover, by focusing on practical, rather than purely theoretical, solutions, we ensure that our clients are able to implement best practices as seamlessly as possible. When a cooperative resolution cannot be achieved, our litigators represent clients at trial as well as at administrative hearings before the EEOC, DFEH, DLSE and other agencies, boards and tribunals.
