Labor & Employment

Miller Morton's employment attorneys represent our clients in all types of workplace disputes.

From small and start-up businesses to major corporations, we are frequently called upon to assess liability and exposure in the face of a potential claim, giving our clients the information they need to make informed employment decisions. When exposure escalates to claims, we defend employers against discrimination, wrongful termination, harassment and hostile work environment claims.

In addition, our employment attorneys provide counseling and advisory services on issues pertaining to wages, benefits, hiring and firing, severance agreements and other employment-related concerns to head off employment disputes before they start. California has some of the most onerous employment laws in the Country, and it is critically important for businesses to put the correct policies in place to govern the employment relationship. At Miller Morton we are well-versed in working with employers to craft management policies and employment handbooks that comply with Federal and California employment laws.

Our labor and employment attorneys regularly present and teach courses on topics including harassment and discrimination, employee discharge and human resources law. Our clients also benefit from our active involvement in industry organizations such as the American Bar Association’s and Santa Clara County Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Sections.
