About me

Mr. Anthony Raimondo specializes in labor relations and employment law, including management representation in counter-organizing campaigns, unfair labor practice defense, grievance and arbitration defense, and collective bargaining negotiations. Represents employers in state and federal courts in actions ranging from harassment and discrimination to wage and hour disputes. Defends employers in administrative agency proceedings and investigations including the National Labor Relations Board, the Agricultural Labor Relations Board, the California Labor Commissioner, U.S. Department of Labor, Cal/OSHA, EEOC, and others. Defends suits under Business and Professions Code §17200 brought by public prosecutors and private plaintiffs. Mr. Raimondo represented the defendant in Arias v. Superior Court (2009), establishing that representative actions under Business and Professions Code §17200 brought by private plaintiffs must be brought as class actions.


Mr. Raimondo has been representing employers since 2001 when he left the Fresno County Public Defender to enter private practice. He has assisted employers with strategic planning in labor relations, and has counseled employers in day to day workplace issues to avoid litigation. Mr. Raimondo has successfully turned back organizing campaigns from some of America’s most aggressive unions, and has negotiated favorable contracts for unionized employers. Mr. Raimondo has assisted clients with government investigations and audits, and regularly defends wage claims before the California Labor Commissioner.


Mr. Raimondo is the primary labor and employment resource for California’s Western United Dairymen, and regularly publishes articles in industry newsletters.


Mr. Raimondo is admitted to practice in the State of California and U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California and Northern District of California
