Lisa is an experienced employment attorney and litigator. In her employment law practice she helps startup and mid-size companies navigate and comply with Federal and state employment laws and regulations. This includes laws related to wage and hour requirements, sexual harassment and retaliation, worker classification (independent contractor vs. employee status) and overtime laws, among others. She acts as a sounding board and advise clients as they face critical decisions about their employment practices, such as mass (or “one-off”) termination of employees, compliance with disability laws and regulations, expansion of the workforce, classifying employees as “exempt” from overtime, transitioning “exempt” employees to non-exempt status, creating and enforcing social media policies, classifying workers as employees or independent contractors, and other employment and labor issues. She also provides training in sensitive and problematic areas such as sexual harassment, discrimination, and other equally important employment law related issues critical for ensuring that companies remain compliant with employment (and other) laws, and avoid government investigations and litigation.

In addition, Lisa provides counsel to senior executives in job transitions, helping them navigate issues relating to stock options, severance packages and providing advice about their obligations under intellectual property and trade secret laws whether they return to the workforce or form a new company of their own. Royse Law Firm has both ERISA and tax counsel who assist her in this type of retention.

In addition to her counseling services, Lisa litigates cases before Federal and state courts in California and other states and represent clients in matters before the California Labor Commissioner, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor, the California Department of Labor, taxing agencies and other agencies and commissions. Her litigation practice involves both employment and non-employment related matters. Lisa has litigated employment related cases for companies and individuals involving, among other issues, ADA compliance, sexual harassment, improper employee classification, wage and hour claims (including class action claims).

Lisa’s general (non-employment) civil litigation experience has involved a wide range of issues focused primarily on commercial disputes. This has included, among others, partnership disputes, collection matters, real estate claims, breach of contract and fraud claims.

Finally, Lisa provides legal counseling relating to compliance with trade secret laws, with an emphasis on helping her clients resolve their differences prior to resorting to litigation.
