The Watkins Firm Only Represents Employers
The successful San Diego employer defense attorneys at the Watkins Firm only represent employers. We focus intently upon the facts of each case, the discovery process, legal skill and the documentation of a strong chronology to successfully defend our clients, even in the seemingly toughest of cases. Our track record at trial in discrimination and sexual harassment cases is very strong. Even in cases where the facts seemed lock tight for the plaintiff and the owners of a company were concerned about their exposure, our attorneys focused on the high legal burden of proof required and the actual behaviors and choices made by the plaintiff before and after employment.
Recently, San Diego and Southern California have seen a substantial increase in wage and hour litigation and Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) cases. Plaintiffs lawyers heavily advertise for disgruntled employees searching for a potential legal foothold.
The key to these cases is immediate action. Employers need to seek the advice and counsel of the Watkins Firm the moment they become aware of a potential employee action or if they are contacted by an external legal entity or agency seeking information regarding employee payroll or personnel records. There is a short time frame from the outset of the case wherein the Watkins Firm can help our employer clients to completely resolve or significantly mitigate not only the matter at hand but any potential future expansion of legal and financial exposure. Our free consultation provides not only peace of mind but the knowledge of what actions to take and those to avoid.

It is important to review every aspect of the employment process, including:
- Interview documentation
- Offer Letters
- Employment Contracts
- Employee Handbooks
