FIRM OVERVIEW

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

The office staff is always very kind and attentive to anything we may need assistance with. There is one specific person who we have grown greatly fond of, Gerardo Hernandez. Mr. Hernández never fails to amaze us with his knowledge and experience. Gerardo is always very dependable and accessible when needed. As a farm labor contractor there are always questions and concerns that come up on the daily, but we know we can always count on Gerardo to guide us and answer any questions at the best of his knowledge. He always easy to reach and quick to respond. We would like to thank Raimondo & Associates for their great work and service, and especially Gerardo Hernandez for his hard work and dedication to our business.
