ABOUT RAIMONDO & ASSOCIATES
Raimondo & Associates specializes in labor relations and employment law, including management representation in counter-organizing campaigns, unfair labor practice defense, grievance and arbitration defense, and collective bargaining negotiations. We defend employers in state and federal courts in actions ranging from harassment and discrimination to wage and hour disputes. Our team advocates for employers in administrative agency proceedings and investigations including the National Labor Relations Board, the Agricultural Labor Relations Board, the California Labor Commissioner, U.S. Department of Labor, Cal/OSHA, EEOC, and others. The litigation practice includes suits under Business and Professions Code §17200 brought by public prosecutors and private plaintiffs as well as OSHA, workers’ compensation, and civil and criminal actions in serious workplace accidents, including fatalities. Mr. Raimondo represented the defendant in Arias v. Superior Court (2009), establishing that representative actions under Business and Professions Code §17200 brought by private plaintiffs must be brought as class actions.
Additionally, Mr. Raimondo also represented the defendant in the Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc. v Santisteban case, wherein the Court of Appeal upheld our dismissal of a lawsuit related to a workplace fatality.
Our firm also offers representation in commercial litigation, corporate formation and governance, and bankruptcy matters
ASSOCIATIONS & COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
Our firm works in partnership to support the work of industry associations in a variety of industries. We have successfully packaged our services for association members to enable the delivery of premiere legal services to even the smallest of businesses, at an affordable cost. We proudly sponsor a variety of charitable organizations and activities, and welcome requests for support. The firm has a history of pro bono representations, particularly for employees’ whose rights are being abused by unions, and we invite contacts with workers who need help.
We were proud to stand with the Gerawan workers in their fight for Worker Free Choice in the face of UFW oppression and ALRB corruption. We fought for five years to secure the workers’ right to vote. I will always be inspired by the determination these workers showed against a politically connected union and the corrupt state official in its pocket. – Anthony Raimondo
“Anthony and his office were supportive of our civil rights fight that lasted many years. They never turned their back on thousands of my co-workers from Gerawan Farms. They never once charged us a penny for all the hard work that eventually led to us finally winning and receiving the right to choose at our workplace” – Silvia Lopez
