Employment Law & Litigation
The vast body of federal and state employment law impacts virtually all stages of the employment relationship, from interviewing and hiring through termination and retirement. For employers, chief priorities include maintaining compliance with intricate legal requirements and avoiding disputes. For employees, challenges such as wrongful termination, discrimination and sexual harassment can jeopardize your rights and livelihood.
Navigating employment-related legal issues — whether as an employer or employee — requires skill, experience and practical insight. At Watkins & Letofsky, LLP, a full-service civil litigation firm, our legal team provides invaluable guidance for both employers and employees in diverse industries. With convenient offices in Santa Ana and Las Vegas, we represent clients in employment law matters throughout Southern California and Nevada.

Our legal team works with employers and human resources departments to structure training sessions, develop employee handbooks, implement internal disciplinary and complaint procedures, and formulate other measures for success.
