  • Americans With Disabilities Act 

  • California Fair Employment and Housing Act 

  • COBRA 

  • Collective bargaining agreements and union-management relations 

  • Employee defamation 

  • Employee privacy and drug testing

Our labor & employment attorneys also provide litigation avoidance services. We work with our clients to develop effective personnel policies and practices, and we draft and negotiate employment agreements and separation agreements.  We also provide preventative counseling and education for employers and managers on a wide range of matters including terms of employment, independent contractors, trade secrets, ERISA and employee benefits, discipline, searches, drug testing, termination, severance, and equal employment opportunity.

Dillingham & Murphy attorneys regularly provide their clients with the policies, training, and advice needed to minimize, or to avoid altogether, the costs of defending employment cases -- both financial and human.
