Employers Need Every Edge They Can Get
Employees think employers have all the power, but that is not true. For starters, employers are often playing defense and reacting to fast-moving events. You have to worry not only about the situation at hand but also the company’s bottom line and the impact of adverse publicity.
The civil trial firm of Schroeder Schaff & Low provides defense counsel to businesses and nonprofits in Sacramento and throughout California. Our proactive approach can help you troubleshoot employment conflicts and determine the course of action that will best protect your interests. We are true trial lawyers who prepare for court and – unlike many defense firms – regularly try cases to verdict.
Employment Law For California Employers
California is known for its strong employee protections, which makes it all the more important to mount a prompt and sophisticated defense when conflicts arise. Our full-service approach includes the capacity for workplace investigations of complaints, risk management consulting, dispute resolution and employment litigation.

- Sexual harassment or a hostile working environment

- Wrongful termination
- ADA defense (disability accommodations)
- PAGA labor violations
- Wage and hour claims
- Professional liability
