About me

Steven M. Rubin dedicates
his career to promoting the rights of individuals in the workplace. He
has been involved in bringing a leading workplace wage and hour case
before the California Supreme Court. He has successfully handled
hundreds of severance negotiations, and regularly litigates cases into
substantial cash award settlements for his clients, often early enough
in the process so that the benefits are enjoyed without the uncertainty
and anxiety that accompanies years of trial and appellate litigation.
He handles arbitrations under a variety of providers such as AAA, ADR,
and Jams; and has wide experience with mediation and creative
approaches to alternate dispute resolution. Above all, he has shown a
special aptitude for creatively and effectively bringing employers to
the table to engage in the early negotiation of disputes. His firm's
practice includes representation of corporate executives and managers
from all industries, highly compensated professionals, as well as
victims of sexual harassment, disability discrimination, workplace
violence, and other wrongs and discrimination in the workplace. The
firm has successfully resolved all matter of sexual misconduct cases,
violence and harassment cases, often through confidential pre-trial
negotiations. It represents employees in many different industries in
wage and hour cases, most notably misclassification cases involving
large groups of employees claiming unpaid overtime, breaks and lunch
hours. The firm regularly represents individuals in disability
discrimination cases involving failure to accommodate issues, wrongful
termination, retaliation and other related claims.  In California, the
disability discrimination provisions are broad, so that people with
heart conditions, bad backs, cancer, lupus, diverticulitis and a
mutlitude of other conditions who take medical leaves or need other
accommodations are frequently covered. The disability cases often
involve FMLA/CFRA claims as well. The firm often and early engages the
services of expert economists, forensic psychologists, and private
investigators in order to establish liability through witnesses and
document medical and psychological damages.
