Labor and Employment litigation / Counseling

Joel H. Siegal's' labor and employment practice counsels management clients in every area of labor and employment law.

In addition to traditional labor work, I have extensive experience in all aspects of employment litigation, including trial work, in cases arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the WARN Act and other federal and state laws regulating the workplace. I also have extensive experience defending clients against breach of contract claims, wrongful discharge claims, and the ever-growing list of employment tort claims.

Political Activity Discrimination

Participating in the political process in the United States can be one of the most rewarding things a citizen can do. We are all free to express our hope for the future of the country through financial donations, membership in political organizations, running for office, and other political activities. And we each have a choice about which political organizations and movements we support. In California, it is illegal for an employer to use threats of job loss in an attempt to coerce or influence its employees’ political activities. For example, your employer can’t force you to make a political donation you don’t want make or stop you from running for political office. If you think you’ve been the target of this kind of discrimination, please call me. I can help you sort through the issues and ensure that you are compensated for any injustice.
