U.S. and California Employment Law

The Rose Group is well-versed in California’s unique approaches to the employment laws and regulations that apply to most workplaces. Our focus is prevention and reducing risk. The California Labor Code, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, precedent-setting decisions issued by the California, and other State laws place greater restrictions on employers than do the federal employment laws. Policies and practices that are common and lawful in other states are often prohibited or strictly regulated in California, and can unwittingly create liability and lead to expensive litigation.

The Rose Group works closely with our clients to obtain the services they need to effectively manage California’s complex legal landscape to minimize the risk of employment litigation with an effective prevention program. We partner with our clients to quickly and successfully address the day-to-day human resources and employment law concerns that arise with respect to their California job applicants, employees and former employees. In this regard, The Rose Group assists our clients to devise policies and procedures promoting constructive employee relations and limiting disputes.
