In the last decade far too many so-called labor lawyers have come onto the scene. The majority of those calling themselves labor attorneys have little experience representing employees in actual court cases. Few of our competitors have tried employee lawsuits, seriously litigated them, or obtained decent results. Karl Gerber has represented employees since 1993 and dealt with most issues in employee representation before the competition.

If our law firm accepts your case
you will be represented by seasoned labor lawyers

Talk is cheap; actually representing an employee through settlement or trial is the real thing. Do not be fooled by employment law firms whose paralegals are willing to meet you. Moreover, many inexperienced law firms spend considerable time speaking to an employee client, obtaining documents from the client, maybe even meeting the client, and they never take the client’s case because they are afraid to engage in contingency fee representation and advance costs. Even worse some of law firms will take your case, sit on it, and drop it if it cannot settle. Our employee law firm only represents clients on a contingency while advancing litigation costs, and only takes employee cases. Our goal is to have your lawsuit filed forthwith!

Find a Labor Lawyer

If you have a good case we will take your case. If you have a small case we can refer your case to a lawyer, starting off, who regularly handles small cases. After representing employees for so many years attorneys commonly come to us asking if we might be able to refer cases when they decide to strike out on their own.


Our lawyers are versed in both California and Federal labor laws that might apply to given work scenarios. There are some cases where it is important to mix both California and Federal labor laws. For instance, the Federal Family Medical Leave Act does not require a right-to-sue letter and can be utilized if there is a FMLA violation that occurred more than a year ago.

Labor laws deal with:

  • There are witnesses to the sexual harassment
  • The sexual harassment can be proven through text messages, or a written document
  • The sexual harassment involves actual touching
  • The sexual harassment was complained about and not remedied
  • The sexual harassment was done by a supervisor or higher level employee
  • Others complained about the same sexual harasser
  • The employer is large enough to pay a substantial settlement or judgment
  • The sexual harassment victim’s emotional turmoil was documented by a therapist
