Ferraro Employment Law is a labor and employment law firm that represents employees, contractors and executives.  We successfully represent clients in every type of labor and employment case under the California Labor Code, Fair Employment and Housing Act, California Family Rights Act, Private Attorneys General Act, as well as other state and federal labor laws.  You should settle for nothing but the best when selecting a qualified California labor and employer lawyer to handle your case.


At Ferraro Employment Law, it is our mission to ensure that employees are treated fairly and paid what they deserve under the law, regardless of whether they can afford a lawyer.  Ferraro Employment Law represents California’s employees, executives and workers in individual and class action litigation involving unpaid wages, unfair labor practices, discrimination, harassment and hostile work environments, retaliation, whistleblowing and wrongful termination, among other workplace injustices.

We recognize the significance of your decision to take legal action against a company or former employer.  This step is often intimidating and uncomfortable.  Clients often take comfort in knowing that about 95 percent of all cases are resolved before trial.  But if an early resolution isn’t the best course of action, clients can rest assured in knowing that the Ferraro Employment Law will work tirelessly to obtain a favorable judgment on your behalf.

We also understand the tactics that defendants with infinite resources use to “save on labor costs,” lay off employees and avoid responsibility for their actions.  Nicholas J. Ferraro, founder of the firm, previously worked at some of the nation’s top national and international law firms.  He has been on both sides of the table.  He has the talent, knowledge, skill and experience to litigate the most high-stakes cases for his clients.
