Businesses in California, from small to large, oftentimes face significant challenges on a regular basis. Litigation is, unfortunately, one such challenge. And, if that litigation is initiated by a former employee with a claim of discrimination, the challenge is not just financial – it is a challenge to the integrity and fairness of the business itself.
Defending against such a challenge is no small feat. Reputation is one thing, but if a former employee is claiming significant damages too, that could be a threat to the very existence of the company. Businesses in California that are facing a discrimination claim will need to put in the work to prepare a sound defense strategy.
Understanding the law
When it comes to preparing a defense strategy, understanding the law is crucial. State and federal laws may come into play, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission may be involved in the litigation as well. As soon as your company receives notice of a discrimination claim, it is time to put your planning strategy into effect.
At our law firm, we work with businesses in California that are facing discrimination claims under state or federal employment law. Finding the right options for your particular case will usually involve a detailed review of the claim in question, as well as evaluating all options for a response. Employers have rights too.
