Employment law is complex. It is difficult to know what your workplace rights are, and which labor and employment laws (California, federal, or both) apply to a discrimination or employment issue. It is also difficult to go up against your employer, especially if it is a big, well-funded company. At Bogaards Davis LLP, our San Francisco-based employment law attorneys have that knowledge, have the mettle, and have three decades of experience successfully investigating and litigating employee claims. We can handle cases at the cutting edge of discrimination claims involving disability, gender, religion, national origin or race, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy and other protected status. If you are an employee and believe you have been discriminated against, it is important to consult with an experienced employment lawyer. We can help you understand your workplace rights and bring a claim against your employer.

In addition to discrimination claims, we have expertise in helping employees with a wide range of employment issues, including:

  • Employment contracts and severance agreements
  • Sexual harassment, either by a hostile work environment or by an overt request for sexual favors
  • Glass ceiling complaints involving unexplained barriers or cessation of women's careers
  • Claims for denied family or medical leave under state or federal law
  • Wrongful termination
  • Retaliatory termination
  • Whistleblower claims and qui tam actions under the False Claims Act
  • Wage and hour disputes, including claims for missed breaks and meals, and unpaid overtime, vacation and sales commissions

Combining knowledge of the law plus 30 years’ of trial experience plus real-time technology, Bogaards Davis LLP lawyers can achieve premium results at an affordable price. In many employment law matters, we can represent clients at no expense to them; fees are only collected if the client wins. We have the investigators, experience and persistence to determine the facts of any employment issue and to take quick action on behalf of our clients. We also are well-known for our exceptional client service, and give total support in clients’ workplace situations. For example, we counsel clients closely before they resign from a hostile work environment, helping them procure their personnel file, obtain a copy of the employee manual, and appropriately word their resignation or constructive termination document. We guide clients through their case from beginning to end, explaining every step of the process, and tirelessly advocate on their behalf for the best possible outcome. We take great pride in being accessible to clients whenever needed, including evenings and weekends.
