Our Employment Law services include:

Employment Agreements

Employment agreements can be critical when hiring new employees. Due to the ever-changing landscape of California labor laws, employment agreements must be updated to stay relevant and enforceable. The employment law specialists at Kraeber Law can advise you on all types of agreements including:

  • Executive and non-executive employment agreements
  • Non-competition agreements
  • Non-disclosure agreements (NDA)
  • Severance agreements
  • Consulting agreements
  • Commission agreements
  • Independent contractor agreements

Workplace Handbooks and Personnel Policies

Whether your business is a large corporation with many employees or a small business with only one employee, an employee handbook is vital to properly communicate with all workers as well as to ensure the legally required disclosures are made. The attorneys at Kraeber Law can guide and help you create a handbook that encompasses all the rules and regulations your workers are required to follow in a concise and organized manner. Missing information, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem to you, can cause immense (and expensive) problems later on. Avoid unnecessary issues by contacting the experts at Kraeber Law. We can also draft, strengthen, and revise other documents used by employers in the course of management, such as:

  • Employment applications
  • Employment offer letters
  • Commission plans and agreements
  • Performance review forms
  • Disciplinary memoranda
  • Leaves of absences
  • Arbitration agreements
  • Severance agreements

Wage and Hour Issues

The California wage and hour laws are extremely complex and are a minefield of potential problems. The attorneys at Kraeber Law can provide helpful advice and specific recommendations for becoming compliant with those laws and remaining in compliance. Failure to be in compliance causes the added complication of disgruntled employees that do not believe they are being fairly (or legally) paid for their work. The experts at Kraeber Law can help you in areas such as:

  • Exempt and non-exempt classifications
  • Independent contractor vs. employee classifications
  • Compliance with overtime laws
  • Alternative work schedules
  • Compensatory time off
  • Commission plans
  • Meals and rest periods

Disciplinary Investigations

If your company is accused of wrongdoing, it is critical that you respond promptly and effectively. The attorneys at Kraeber Law can assist with the investigation to help head off liability and to demonstrate the seriousness with which your company is taking the report of wrongdoing. The employment law attorneys at Kraeber Law can help you strike the ideal balance and reach a fair decision swiftly and effectively.

Administrative Hearings and Litigation

Our goal is to avoid litigation whenever possible, but the attorneys at Kraeber Law understand that it is, at times, an unavoidable reality. When that happens, the experts at Kraeber Law can step in and help. We have over 75 years of extensive experience counseling and representing clients in a wide range of employment disputes such as:

  • Wrongful discharge and termination
  • Employment discrimination
  • Sexual harassment
  • Retaliation
