Employers with operations in California—especially those based outside the state and startup companies—face unique challenges. California law often sets the national trend with employment law developments predating changes across the country.

With attorneys in five California locations (Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Orange County and Sacramento), Jackson Lewis has one of the largest labor and employment law practices in the Golden State. We practice before all California federal and state courts, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the California Courts of Appeal and the California Supreme Court, as well as all California state and federal agencies involved in enforcing employment and labor law.
