Representing California Employees In Workplace Disputes And Wrongful Termination
Our experienced lawyers handle employment law cases involving issues such as wrongful termination, unpaid wages and unpaid overtime. If your employer is denying your wages, discriminating against you, has wrongfully terminated you or committed any other adverse job action, we will help you seek the compensation you deserve.
Attorney Paul V. Bennett graduated from McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific, in 1987. He has extensive experience in California employment law and understands how state and federal laws could impact your case.
We represent clients whose rights as employees were violated under laws and policies such as:
- Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
- Unemployment benefit laws
- Equal Pay Act
- Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
- Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- California Fair Employment and Housing Act
We also work with federal and state employees before the EEOC, MSPB, administrative agencies, and state and federal courts.
Negotiating Contracts And Severance Packages
We aggressively negotiate severance packages for those who have been terminated or are leaving the company by choice. We also assist clients with contract matters, including reviewing noncompete agreements. Even if you are in the middle of the process, we can step in at any point in the process to make sure you get a fair outcome. However, to get the best results, it’s better to contact an attorney sooner rather than later.
Federal sector employees have additional administrative remedies when faced with illegal treatment at work, but the deadlines to take action are often quite short. Bennett & Ellison has decades of experience handling matters for federal sector employees, including matters before administrative EEOC judges and the Merit Systems Protection Board. Federal sector employees should immediately contact our office if they feel they have been discriminated, harassed or retaliated against at work.

It can be heartbreaking to speak to someone who appears to have a legitimate claim only to find that the window of opportunity for making the claim has “closed.” If you are unclear about the time you have, or of the process, you do not have to handle it alone.
