Sophia Behnia advises and represents employers in a broad range of employment and labor matters arising under federal and state laws, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, wage and hour, and class actions. She regularly counsels employers regarding wage and hour compliance, audits payroll practices and evaluates classification determinations.
