Great news! The Daily Reviewer has just selected “California Labor & Employment Law” as one of its Top 100 Legal Blogs. We’re very excited by the recognition. A big thank you to the hard-working editors at the Daily Reviewer. Keep up the good work and we’ll keep on doing what we’ve been doing and hopefully stay on your list. To everyone else, (more…)
Sorry for the long hiatus, folks. But I do have an excuse: I was tied up doing a particularly grueling 3-week jury trial in federal court in Fresno, CA. I’m happy to say that the good guys won — a unanimous verdict on all counts: disability discrimination (mental disability) under the California Fair Employment & Housing Act (FEHA), failure to accommodate a disability, failure to engage in interactive process to find a reasonable accommodation, CFRA/FMLA medical leave interference, medical leave violation, medical leave retaliation, FEHA complaint retaliation, etc.
The good folks over at the "Delaware Employment Law Blog", which is itself a top-notch employment law blog published by the Delaware law firm of Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, have seen fit to include our blog in their roundup of the Top 100 Employment Law Blogs across the country . Of course, we’re thrilled by the honor. Right back at ya, mates! Make sure to check out their list and their blog when you get the chance.
Sorry folks but it looks like I won’t be posting here for a while. I’m about to head into 3 straight weeks of back-to-back depositions (lawyer-speak for witness interviews in a lawsuit). For the non-lawyers out there, that’s a LOT of depos. I’ll get back to posting as soon as the craziness lets up. Until then, may the employment gods smile upon you.
Michael Fox runs one of the oldest and most respected employment law blogs (blawgs?) in the business, "Jottings by an Employer’s Lawyer" . He was blogging long before it became fashionable. I’ve been a regular reader of his blog and a fan.
Recently, Michael got nostalgic and posted this entry: "6 Years, 1800 Posts and How the World Has Changed" . Why (more…)
My work schedule for the next month is going to be very tight so posts may become more sporadic. I’ll let you all know as soon as I am able to get back to more regular posting. If you’ve got questions, feel free to click on the “Ask An Attorney” tab at the top and drop me a line. Thank you!

Peter Black’s blog, Freedom to Differ, recently hosted a weekly editorial roundup of interesting articles from legal blogs around the world. Peter Black is a law lecturer at Queensland University of Technology in Australia. His blog focuses on happenings in the area of internet and media law.
I was honored to have two of my articles, this one and this one, selected for inclusion in the roundup. Thank you Mr. Black! After getting over the initial excitement, I took a moment to read some of the other posts that had been selected. I found this eye-opening post from a lawyer named Scott Greenfield who practices in New York:
“For those of us in the trenches, we see and hear a lot of things from the bench that make us cringe. From the “soft-core” improprieties of inappropriate temperament to covert bias, judges are untouchable. To grieve is to commit (more…)
So my blog has scored a literacy level of “Junior High School”.
Would it surprise you if I told you I am doing my darnedest to make this blog as easy to read as possible? As a trial lawyer, my goal is to communicate. Communicate to the judge. Communicate to the jury. Communicate to opposing counsel. And communicate to you. What makes it especially hard is that the law is rarely straightforward.
