Robert S. Boulter represents employees and employers in a variety of employment matters. These include violations of state and federal employment statutes involving minimum and overtime wages, discrimination, disabilities, wrongful termination, and other working conditions. State and federal employment laws are often complex and an attorney experienced in this area can help clients navigate this challenging scheme of regulations. The firm represents clients in state and federal court, and before state and federal administrative agencies.
The firm also prosecutes appeals when necessary to protect its clients’ rights and advance the rights of employees. For example, in Ramsdell v Lenscrafters Inc, 135 Fed. Appx. 130 (9th Cir. 2005), Boulter successfully argued before the Ninth Circuit court of Appeals that a prohibition of class action lawsuits in employment arbitration agreements was unconscionable. In Reynolds v Bement, 36 Cal. 4th 1075 (Cal. 2005), Boulter litigated an important employee rights issue before the California Supreme Court. Specifically, the case addressed whether officers, directors, and shareholders of corporate employers could be liable for unpaid minimum and overtime wages.
