About Scott & Whitehead
The law firm of Scott and Whitehead specializes in labor and employment law, counseling and litigation. Founded in 1993, the firm is committed to excellence in representing employers.
Our lawyers, who have had distinguished careers with prominent regional and national labor and employment law firms, pride themselves on having exceptional analytical skills and judgment, excellent oral and written expression, and keen business sense.
The firm's labor and employment law practice covers a broad spectrum of the field. Our lawyers have extensive experience defending employers against wrongful termination and related claims in state and federal courts, as well as counseling management regarding preventive policies and practices. We defend businesses in employment discrimination and sexual harassment claims, as well as before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and other state and local fair employment agencies. We counsel management regarding labor disputes, union organizing drives, arbitrations, and labor litigation matters under the National Labor Relations Act. We also advise management on the development and implementation of employee handbooks, personnel policies and safety manuals, and regarding compliance with state and federal wage and hour laws.
The firm represents employers in a wide array of private sector industries as well as in the public sector. The firm's private sector clients range from national and international companies, to medium-sized California businesses, to local proprietorships. The firm's public sector clients include school districts, sanitation districts, and cities. We understand that each employer faces unique problems, so our attorneys become thoroughly familiar with the business issues facing each of our clients and provide advice that is both practical and responsive.
