Santa Clara Employment Law Defense Counsel

If an employee believes that he or she has been denied an opportunity or promotion or has been fired due to his or her race, age, sex, gender identity, disability, or one of many other personal characteristics, he or she may file a discrimination claim against the company in question with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC. When this happens to your business, you have little choice but to mount the best possible defense in response to the claim.

Your defense will likely require a comprehensive investigation, including interviews with key personnel and an exhaustive review of company documents and records. Throughout the process, your business must still continue to operate and to serve your customers. Our skilled business attorneys can assist you in managing your defense without jeopardizing the profitability or future of your company.

Preventing Discrimination Claims in California

The simplest and most effective way to deal with a discrimination claim is to prevent it from occurring through carefully considered and evenly applied employment policies. From the application process to promotion and advancement to termination for any reason, your company’s procedures should be developed in such a way that discrimination is never tolerated. The lawyers at SAC Attorneys LLP have the knowledge and skills to help you create strategies for recruitment, hiring, evaluating, promoting, and even terminating employees equitably and without regard for protected characteristics.

Despite your best efforts, an individual may still file a discrimination claim against you and your business. When this happens, it is up to you to prove that you acted in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. Evidence such as your employee handbook, notes of conversations, documented disciplinary actions, and witness testimony can all be used to help build your case.

Problem-Solving Attorneys Serving San Francisco

In most cases, a discrimination claim filed with the EEOC will be directed toward an informal process known as conciliation, which is essentially a type of alternative dispute resolution similar to mediation. Conciliation includes both parties, their representation, and officials from the EEOC. Our attorneys recognize that, in some cases, conciliation may offer the best opportunity to resolve your case without the need for costly and time-consuming litigation. If conciliation fails to yield a resolution, the filing party will have been granted the right to file a lawsuit in federal court. No matter how complex the case may be, we are prepared advocate on your behalf both at the negotiating table and in the courtroom.

Client Reviews
Mr. Cai Is a Diligent Attorney. My sister and I were defendants in a civil litigation case. We hired James Cai and his law firm, SAC Attorneys LLP. Mr. Cai is a diligent attorney and responded to our questions in a timely fashion. He and his staff were very helpful in keeping us informed of the proceedings of the case and in explaining each step. Mr. Cai is also very conscientious of fees and costs, and avoided unnecessary charges. The results of the Summary Adjudication sided with us. The Court Trial resulted in the “Final Statement of Decision” and “Judgment after Court Trial” overwhelmingly siding with us. Cynthia F.
I Am Truly Impressed. After spending a significant amount of time, money and efforts with my previous counsel at a larger law firm without getting meaningful results, I transferred my employment matter to SAC Attorneys LLP. The attorneys there were able to understand the complex situations of my case and put together an aggressive litigation strategy. We were able to file a compelling complaint within a week and forced the opposing party, which was represented by one of the largest law firms in California, to make a substantial settlement offer shortly thereafter. I am truly impressed by the no nonsense and results oriented approach by SAC Attorneys LLP attorneys. A job well done! X. Gao
They Took Time to Understand Our Technology. I am the founder of a bioinformatics start-up in the Silicon Valley and chose SAC Attorneys LLP as our corporate counsels. Their attorneys have great experience with high tech start-ups and were able to offer a highly competitive service plan while not sacrificing a bit of their quality of services. They took time to understand our technology and provided value added services by introducing investors and job candidates to us. We regard our attorneys at SAC Attorneys LLP not only as our legal advisors but also our venture partners. Dr. Pete S.
