  • Pay equity and compensation analysis
  • Wage and hour audits, exempt classification analysis
  • Employment agreements, including offer letters and executive agreements
  • Hiring and pre-employment matters

  • Local ordinance compliance
  • Commission agreements and compensation plans
  • Confidentiality, non-disclosure and restrictive convent agreements

Pacific Employment Law attorneys often act as outsourced employment counsel for their clients.  Maureen Bogue spent several years as in-house employment counsel for a global company, so she understands the challenges faced by in-house counsel and human resource professionals.  Companies seek advice from Pacific Employment Law because we provide implementable solutions to complex employment and HR challenges.


Our firm provides anti-harassment training (including the management training required in California), as well as training on conducting internal investigations and managing within the law. We tailor our training programs to meet the specific needs of each client, while reflecting their culture and values.
