    Labor & Employment

    Hunt Ortmann’s experienced employment law professionals have diverse specialties, and provide effective and efficient legal services that address the employment needs of all types of businesses, regardless of size or type of industry. The Firm’s Employment Law Group is a natural outgrowth of Hunt Ortmann’s extensive experience advising construction-related business owners, both large and small.  Our clients routinely benefit from our unique ability to provide strategic counsel that is construction industry-specific. That said, no matter the type of industry, all California businesses have employment-related challenges and concerns. Hunt Ortmann’s Employment Law Group partners with clients throughout the state to help ensure our clients’ businesses meet strategic goals, and are successful over the long-term.

    With more than 60 years combined experience, our employment attorneys guide clients through the increasingly complex web of California, federal and local employment law, helping to create, implement and assess HR and related policies to minimize the risk of litigation. Employment laws are continually changing, with new regulations taking effect each year. Hunt Ortmann’s Employment Law Group works with clients to incorporate each new change into an effective policy.

    In addition to ensuring legal compliance, our Employment Law Group also provides timely guidance on how to handle employment situations as they arise. Such early counseling can mitigate, or even prevent, the risk of litigation and is therefore a cost-effective investment for clients.

    If a lawsuit is unavoidable even despite preventative measures, Hunt Ortmann’s Employment Law Group vigorously defends clients in court, while remaining open to a fair settlement. We have successfully defeated many employment claims at the demurrer and summary judgment stage, saving clients hundreds of thousands of dollars in trial costs. We also have extensive experience with wage-and-hour class actions, as well as single-plaintiff employment claims, ranging from discrimination and harassment to breach of contract and employment torts.

    Hunt Ortmann’s Employment Law Group also offers sexual harassment prevention and California Privacy Rights Act training for employers to keep our clients’ compliant with California laws.

    TRAINING: Prevention of Harassment, Discrimination and Retaliation

    Hunt Ortmann’s Employment Law Group offers training to keep employers compliant with California harassment, discrimination, and retaliation laws. California law requires employers with 5 or more employees to provide two hours of interactive sexual harassment prevention training (including instruction on preventing harassment, discrimination, and retaliation) every two years for all employees. Supervisors and Managers must complete two hours of training and all other employees must complete one hour. We provide certification of completion and compliance.

    Please contact our employment attorneys at if you would like to schedule a harassment, discrimination, and retaliation prevention training, or to learn more about updating your company’s sexual harassment prevention policy.


    We routinely assist clients with issues including state and federal employment regulations, and complex California employment discrimination and labor laws.
