Raimondo & Associates specializes in labor relations and employment law, including management representation in counter-organizing campaigns, unfair labor practice defense, grievance and arbitration defense, and collective bargaining negotiations. We defend employers in state and federal courts in actions ranging from harassment and discrimination to wage and hour disputes. Our team advocates for employers in administrative agency proceedings and investigations including the National Labor Relations Board, the Agricultural Labor Relations Board, the California Labor Commissioner, U.S. Department of Labor, Cal/OSHA, EEOC, and others. The litigation practice includes suits under Business and Professions Code §17200 brought by public prosecutors and private plaintiffs as well as OSHA, workers’ compensation, and civil and criminal actions in serious workplace accidents, including fatalities. Mr. Raimondo represented the defendant in Arias v. Superior Court (2009), establishing that representative actions under Business and Professions Code §17200 brought by private plaintiffs must be brought as class actions.
Additionally, Mr. Raimondo also represented the defendant in the Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc. v Santisteban case, wherein the Court of Appeal upheld our dismissal of a lawsuit related to a workplace fatality.
Our firm also offers representation in commercial litigation, corporate formation and governance, and bankruptcy matters.
