Early involvement of legal counsel may bring resolution before the conflict mushrooms or draws public attention.

The Law Offices of Kermit D. Marsh in Fountain Valley represents California employers in a wide array of employment law and labor law matters. Our proactive, thorough and strategic approach positions clients for the most favorable outcome, in or out of court.

Discrimination And Sexual Harassment

Defense Attorney · Representation In Employment Law

Trial lawyer Kermit Marsh has more than twenty-five years of business litigation experience, including employer representation in employment-based disputes. We provide comprehensive support to business owners and professionals who are sued by employees. We are also consulted by corporate executives and general counsel to address specific employment law matters.

Our employment litigation practice provides defense representation for:

  • Discrimination lawsuits (age, race, national origin, gender, disability, etc.)
  • Sexual harassment claims
  • Wrongful termination or whistleblower retaliation
  • Wage and hour violations (unpaid overtime, contractor status, etc.)
  • Restrictive covenants (noncompete or confidentiality agreements)
  • Severance agreements with executives or key employees
  • Terminating a problem employee without triggering lawsuits
  • Dispute Resolution, Damage Control And Trial Advocacy

Our legal team can respond swiftly to confront allegations and advise clients on corrective measures. At the same time, we enable clients to step back and see the bigger picture. There may be cross-claims and counterclaims if the alleged wrongdoer within the company is sanctioned. Sometimes employees exaggerate the harm or fabricate claims of hostile work environment as leverage for a severance package. What are the costs and ramifications of settlement versus letting the lawsuit play out?

We help clients make informed decisions and set priorities, and then we devise and execute the strategies that will achieve the best outcome under the circumstances. Our firm has litigated employment matters in the California Superior Courts, the U.S. District Courts of California, and the California and United States Courts of Appeal, as well as arbitration and other venues.
