Labor & Employment

When faced with litigation, there is no substitute for experienced counsel. Our attorneys have successfully handled claims of wage and hour violations, discrimination, harassment, whistleblower and retaliation, wage and hour, and wrongful termination in federal and state courts, including class actions and multi-plaintiff cases. We also prevent costly litigation by providing thoughtful employment counseling and training. With our assistance, you can minimize your chances of facing a lawsuit while maximizing your chances of success in the event of litigation.
Our labor and employment experience includes handling claims with Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) disputes and other federal or state regulations. We also respond to individual and systemic discrimination charges brought before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), as well as state and civil rights agencies.
Prevention & Compliance
 
Preventing violations and claims should be priority number one. We focus much of our efforts on advising clients on the federal, state and local laws that must be followed. With the goal of improving employee relations and preventing litigation whenever possible, we perform audits to identify problems before they become legal challenges, and work with employers to prepare:
  • Personnel policies
  • Offer letters
  • Employment contracts
  • Compensation plans
 
In addition, Ivie McNeill Wyatt Purcell & Diggs provides on-site training to clients on:
  • Discrimination
  • Reasonable accommodation
  • Workplace harassment
  • Technology and privacy matters
 
We also provide counseling to resolve workplace conflicts that might otherwise lead to litigation. When necessary, we advise management on how to handle or conduct internal investigations into allegations of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
Wage & Hour
 
If you become embroiled in a complex wage and hour lawsuit, Ivie McNeill Wyatt Purcell & Diggs has had decades of experience handling these matters, including:
  • Overtime
  • Missed meal and break periods
  • Off-the-clock allegations

  • Payroll deductions
 
We represent clients in all types of wage and hour lawsuits in courts and administrative agencies across the country, including class and collective actions. We begin by carefully investigating the claim and gathering evidence, reviewing time cards, personnel files, policies, and other documents. Above all, Ivie McNeill Wyatt Purcell & Diggs will defend you aggressively to minimize damage to your reputation.
