While Nike has teams (yes, teams) of lawyers to fight on its behalf, small to medium sized businesses are not so fortunate. If you are in violation of California’s wage and hour laws, you may find yourself spending a small fortune on litigation, and even more on damages should you lose. To avoid this altogether, it is imperative that you remain in compliance with California’s labor laws. However, at Garcia & Gurney, ALC, we understand that it can be a difficult, if not impossible, task to keep up with the state’s ever-changing labor laws. That is where our employment attorneys come in.
