San Jose Legal Compliance Attorney Daniel A. Menendez

Legal Compliance

California employers face a complicated regulatory landscape. Rapid changes to employment laws create the possibly of unprecedented penalties for noncompliance. 

Daniel A. Menendez's practice provides legal guidance in labor and employment issues, including:

  • Litigation
  • Wage and hour disputes
  • Withdrawal liability assessments
  • Arbitrations

One-size-fits-all legal advice from other jurisdictions simply cannot anticipate the complex interplay between California state law and federal regulations. For example, some California cities, including San Jose, have also passed increased minimum wage laws that increase compliance difficulties for all local employers.

How Can I Meet Federal and State Employment Regulations and Avoid Litigation?

Daniel A. Menendez regularly advises clients and provides preemptive audits regarding:

  • Employment contracts
  • Preparation of policies and handbooks
  • Administrative hearings before the EDD, DLSE, EEOC, and DFEH
  • Wage and hour disputes
  • Sexual harassment training
  • Wage and hour compliance training
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and California Family Rights Act (CFRA)
  • Disability discrimination and reasonable accommodation

Proactive compliance efforts save employers considerable litigation costs, fines, and damages to affected employees. All employers should regularly evaluate their compliance protocols to minimize litigation risk.
