Upcoming Online Event


Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for all California employees, supervisors, and managers


December 8, 2023 at 8 am


California law requires all employers with five or more employees to provide Sexual Harassment Prevention Training to their employees every two years. Supervisors and managers are required to participate in two hours of training, while employees are required to participate in one hour of training.

Guiding clients through major challenges

Compliance with California’s labor laws is no easy task, especially for smaller employers. We excel at working with clients to obtain efficient and amicable resolutions to pending and threatened claims; and educating and guiding clients so they are in compliance with the many regulations and obligations imposed on California employers. We are not looking for repeat litigation clients. We would much rather resolve a dispute for a client and ensure they have no future liability.

Our company has been using Laura Withrow for almost 2 years to help us navigate the HR and employment laws that are so overwhelming for small businesses. Her help has been immeasurable from writing sales contracts to how to handle disgruntled employees and all aspects of  the difficult Covid employer requirements and the rest. I know I can count on her to come through for us and I highly recommend her!

Laura’s expertise, knowledge and responsiveness is a breath of fresh air. Laura has navigated me through what on my end can be confusing legal matters/questions and explains the topics in clear and easy to understand answers. Her added humor is always a delight on a subject matter few find funny. I feel confident and truly supported with the support of Laura. I couldn’t do it without her.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Laura on legal issues for over 15 years. She has assisted me with employment law matters including threatened litigation, administrative claims, and guidance on compliance issues. She is always the first call I make when in need of legal advice. Not only is she the best of the best in the area of employment law, she has a wonderful sense of humor that creates levity in situations which are often stressful. She is honest to her core and will tell you if she’s not the right person to take on your legal situation. Not only does that bring an tremendous amount of value, but she’ll help you find the right person for your needs. If she does take on your case, you can rest assured that you are in the very best hands. Sleep tight, Laura’s got your back.
