The Watkins Firm has decades of experience in cases where we defend a San Diego Employer in employee related lawsuits and disputes. The number of lawsuits faced by employers may never be higher than at this point in our history. Employers face continuous allegations of sexual harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, retaliation and wage and hour related violations such as unpaid overtime and employee misclassification.
In addition, federal actions and lawsuits regarding FMLA disputes or ADA violations can result in costly settlements and significant distraction from the primary function of managing and running your business.
The Watkins Firm has extensive experience defending San Diego employers in employee related lawsuits and a track record of success achieving dismissal or an outright victory in Court. Many employers who felt like the employee had substantial allegations and in some cases seemingly overwhelming evidence have learned our attorneys are skilled at getting to the core of the case and defeating these allegations. In a day of extensive social media, e-mail, cell phone records and texting the electronic records rarely if ever support an employee’s assertions over the long term. In addition, the legal burden of proof in these cases is quite high. Our legal team thoroughly investigates all of the circumstances surrounding the employee’s allegations and the impact the events have had upon the life of the employee. When we have completed our examination of the employee, other employees and co-workers, as well as their friends and family members another set of facts tends to arise.
