A California Employee and Employer Rights Lawyer With A Personal Edge
In a fast-paced, capitalist society, the word "business" may often feel like a code word for "impersonal." When it comes to employer-employee conflict, you want to make sure your business needs and career interests are not swept aside. Whether you are the owner of a small business or a working class wage earner, these needs and interests are personal matters that directly affect your livelihood.
At the Law Office of Carmela J. Woll, we believe in representing the people behind the businesses. From our office in Santa Cruz, we represent employers and employees throughout the central coastal region of California in the areas of employment law and business law. Whether you're fighting for your employee rights or defending your business practices, we offer efficient and reliable legal representation aimed at meeting your personal goals.
Supporting Better Businesses and Careers Through Effective Legal Representation
If you are an employee, you have certain employee rights to protect you from unfair or illegal business practices. If you are a business owner, you are entitled to fair employer representation against exaggerated or false claims. Our goal is to effectively translate our knowledge of the complexities of employment law into terms, conditions and options that meet your individual needs. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in employment law matters, including:
- Wage and hour claims
- Payroll disputes and exemption issues
- Wrongful termination cases
- Contract disputes
- Unemployment insurance claims (EDD)
Our principal attorney, Carmela Woll, has not only the legal knowledge but also the smart business sense to help her clients. In her career prior to being a lawyer, she started her own small business from scratch in Santa Cruz County. Therefore, she understands the complications that arise for business owners and employees alike. Now she draws on her own personal experiences to better aid the interests of her clients.
