  • “Highly Recommend”
    Highly recommend. Laid off without notice by a shady Pre IPO lender in San Francisco. No one was given severance and they hired a labor attorney ahead of the layoffs to try and get around paying severance and warn notice. Without this firm taking my case, I would have never received a dime. Do not let a lay off without any severance deter you, contact this firm. Odd thing was 1 letter from this firm and severance was immediately offered. It's a game these high-tech companies are playing and gambling on. Their bet is 98% will not do anything severance and for the small percent that do, the amount to pay versus provided all in the layoff, is pennies on the dollar. Get your documentation, all emails, take photos of slack messages, record any zoom calls where there is a statement " no one is getting laid off" and so forth. Records any zoom calls where you are laid off. Take notes. Protect yourself and family. Working all the holidays and 12-hour days to be let go with nothing, is ridiculous. Use this firm and provide all your documentation. Good Luck!

  • “Extremely Satisfied”
    I was referred to Ratner Molineaux after my daughter and I suffered injury and property damage resulting from a defective product in our home. During my very first conversation with David Ratner, I found him to be straightforward, professional, and extremely responsive to my concerns. Thereafter, David took the time to walk us through each and every stage of the litigation process and was an excellent advocate for my daughter and I. He remained fiercely protective of our interests and represented us well during mediation, preparation for trial, and settlement talks. David's style is very direct and to the point, which might be off putting for some, but worked well for me since I tend to be laser focused when dealing with business matters. Near the conclusion of my case, I had the opportunity to meet his partner Shelley, who had also diligently and effectively assisted with our litigation. In the end, our result was more than adequate, and both my daughter and I walked away extremely satisfied with both the representation we'd received, and the outcome of our claim. I definitely recommend this firm.

  • “Professional opinion and experienced perspective”
    reached out to Ratner Molineaux after a previous attorney referral did not follow through despite the time sensitivity of my issue. The Ratner Molineaux team responded quickly to schedule a consultation on a work-related matter. David Ratner reviewed my issues and provided options and great advice how I could proceed. It was great peace of mind to have a professional opinion and experienced perspective. The consultation with David Ratner gave me the confidence and knowledge I needed to make my final decision.

Labor and Employment Law

California has some of the strongest protections for employees in the United States, but not all employers comply with the law. Our attorneys work to hold employers for many types of misconduct and, if applicable, can help you navigate the process of filing a claim with California’s Department of Fair Housing and Employment (DFEH) or the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Depending on the nature of the situation, we may be able to help you recover economic, non-economic, and punitive damages.

We stand up for employees facing many types of issues, including:

  • Unlawful Discrimination: Employers are prohibited from making employment decisions on discriminatory grounds. We can review your rights under California’s extensive anti-discrimination laws and determine whether you may have been discriminated against.
  • Sexual Harassment. No one should have to put up with unwanted comments, touching, or quid pro quos. If you are being subject to a hostile work environment, our team can help you explore your legal options.
