The Law Office of Richard B. Rudolph has represented both employers and employees in hundreds of employment cases. We are experienced and well-versed in a wide range of labor and employment cases for both employers and employees.

For Employers

All too often, employers simply do not understand what their legal responsibilities are concerning employees, and that gets them in trouble. Most employment problems are avoidable if proper legal counsel is sought in time. With a bit of advance planning, we can help employers avoid the most serious problems and assist when difficulties arise. Too often, employers are not aware that seemingly minor violations can turn into big, business-threatening financial liabilities. To help avoid such situations in the first place, we can assist with the preparation of employee handbooks and offer guidance in navigating the maze of California labor laws.

For Employees

In those instances where employers have not made adequate efforts to fulfill their legal obligations to employees in preventing inappropriate conduct or concerning wage and hour issues, such as a failure to pay overtime wages or permit regular meal and rest breaks, we can assist harmed employees in recovering what they are rightfully entitled to, including their wages, attorney fees, interest, penalties or monetary damages where appropriate.
