At the Jackson Law Firm, our San Diego Employment Lawyers also offer:

Analysis of your case: We can help you understand your options. 

Strategy counseling: When “The Writing is on the Wall,” we can help you stop future adverse actions and/or gather the evidence, while you are still working, that will be needed if the worst happens and your employment is terminated.

Severance pay negotiations: We can help you obtain the legally defensible severance agreement you deserve. While California law does not require employers to provide severance packages, many companies do offer terminated employees contracts that involve payment to the employee in exchange for other terms. 

At the Jackson Law Firm, our compassionate San Diego Employment Attorneys understand not only the law as it pertains to these issues, but also the psychological toll it can take on the individuals involved.  With labor laws that are among the most protective in the U.S., Californians enjoy more rights and privileges in the workplace than residents of most other states.

Despite this, the relationships many employees have with their employers are often rocky, fraught with conflict and disagreements ranging from wage and hour disputes to employment discrimination. The San Diego Employment Law Attorneys at the Jackson Law Firm have dedicated their careers to the representation of employees – but never employers – who suffer from unfair, discriminatory and illegal practices in the workplace.

Whether you’ve been individually singled out on account of your ethnic background, age, religion, etc. – or your employer’s violation of the labor laws affects not only you, but your coworkers as well – we bring our more than forty years of experience to help each and every one of our clients.
