Employment Law

The Fritz Law Offices represents Employers: Businesses and Non-Profit Organizations. 


 Advising Businesses 

  • Do you need help complying with the various CA State and Federal employment laws and regulations?
  • Do you understand California overtime pay requirements?
  • Are you complying with meal and rest periods?                           
  • Are your workers properly classified as exempt, non-exempt or independent contractors?
  • Do you need advise regarding an employee on a medical or workers' compensation leave of absence?

We advise Employers regarding all areas of employment law, including compliance with State and Federal laws, statutes and governmental regulations relating to their businesses. For example, long term Clients keep us on retainer in order to obtain prompt answers to their questions.  We advise clients in all matters relating to employment law, human resources and other business related matters, whether it is directly with the owners, the Executive Director, General Manager or with the HR Department. 

We assist Employers to implement preventative measures such as written policies and contracts to help Employers to implement consistent policies, maintain stability in their workforce, and maintain control over their valuable trade secrets and confidential information. We prepare Employee Handbooks, Policies & Procedures Manuals and Contracts, such as Employee Agreements for Officers or other key employees, Confidentiality Agreements, Trade Secret Agreements, and Independent Contract Agreements. We assist with Manager training
