4
Practice areas
  1. Discrimination
    25%
    I sue employers for illegal discrimination and/or creating hostile work environment under California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) or under similar federal law. Protected characteristics include, but may not be limited to, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, race, national origin, and religion. I also sue for retaliation if an employee is retaliated against for making a complaint about discrimination or a hostile work environment.

    22 years, 100 cases

  2. Employment and labor
    25%
    I sue employers for labor law violations including minimum wage violations, overtime violations, meal and rest break violations, wage statement violations, waiting time violations, mis-categorizing an employee as an independent contractor, mis-categorizing a non-exempt employee as exempt, PAGA claims, whistleblower claims, FMLA/CFRA leave law violations, and more.

    22 years, 120 cases

  3. Sexual harassment
    25%
    I sue employers for illegal sexual harassment under California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) or under the federal law. I also sue for retaliation if an employee complains about sexual harassment and then experiences any retaliation. I also sue professionals who sexually harass their customers, which an also be illegal.

    22 years, 50 cases

  4. Wrongful termination
    25%
    I sue employers for wrongfully terminating employees when permitted by law. In California, employees can be fired for almost any reason, or no reason, but there are a number of exceptions where an employee has a right to sue. I also sue for wrongful constructive discharge (where the employee has quit, but only because the employer made the job intolerable).

    22 years, 70 cases

I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley (and some years in Simi Valley) in sunny Southern California.  I graduated high school valedictorian and attended the University of Redlands on an academic scholarship.  After getting a double major in philosophy and psychology, I moved back to the San Fernando Valley and worked as an escrow officer for a few years while saving money for law school.  I then attended King Hall School of Law at U.C. Davis (named after Martin Luther King, Jr.).  I graduated in 1997 with the highest academic honor, Order of the Coif (top 10% of class).

While in law school, I was a judicial extern for the Hon. Garland E. Burrell, Jr., federal district judge in Sacramento, who was at the time presiding over the infamous "Unabomber" case.  I also spent three months as a law clerk for the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing at its office in downtown Los Angeles.

After law school, I accepted a position in the litigation department of the largest law firm in Nevada, and relocated to Las Vegas.  After six years, I left that firm to return to Southern California, working as a litigator at firms in Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, and Oxnard.

For years, my practice has been limited to representing employees in employment disputes which include claims for discrimination, harassment (including, but not limited to, sexual harassment), retaliation, whistleblower retaliation, wage/hour violations and other labor law claims.  Basically, if an employee's rights have been violated, and the employee has a legal claim, I probably handle that type of claim.  I provide free consultations and take cases on contingency (no fee unless you get a recovery).

Sexual harassment
When searching for representation it's not always easy finding someone whose trustworthy and knowledgeable. Myers did a great job in fighting for my rights and assisting me in attaining justice. he's very transparent and prompt. He definitely takes his job seriously and we are also moving onto another case.

Absolute best employment Attorney around.
After being taken advantage of by my Ex-employer for nearly eight years, I hired Mr. Myers. He has a extremely calm demeanor and extremely pleasant to deal with, but that's not the case when he is dealing with the opposing party. The recovery I received was far beyond what I thought I would receive and he made the entire process virtually painless. I would recommend to anyone who has been treated unfairly in the work place.

Ken is one of the most intelligent and creative attorneys I have ever met. I have had the opportunity to review some complicated law and motion work that he drafted, and it was extremely well-written and thoroughly researched. I highly endorse Ken Myers."
