Professional Biography

Kevin Jackson represents clients in a variety of labor and employment litigation matters across state and federal courts, as well as administrative actions before the EEOC, DOL, CRD, EDD, and DLSE.

For a decade, Kevin has defended employers in California against wage-and-hour class and representative actions involving claims under the California Labor Code and the Fair Labor Standards Act. Kevin has extensive experience defending employers against actions brought under the California Private Attorneys General Act (“PAGA”).

Kevin has successfully defeated PAGA claims at the pleading stage and summary judgment on various grounds, and takes pride in approaching these high-stakes representative actions with an eye towards practical, creative, and efficient solutions. Kevin has published articles on PAGA advocating for a reasonable, pragmatic approach to the unique substantive and procedural challenges they pose, and his work has been cited in law review articles and in briefing submitted to the United States Supreme Court by the California Chamber of Commerce and the United States Chamber of Commerce.

In addition to his wage-and-hour practice, Kevin represents employers in litigation brought by current and former employees alleging a variety of individual claims for discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, failure to accommodate, and failure to engage in the interactive process. Kevin helps employers mitigate the risk of litigation by providing advice and counsel to navigate the complex web of local, state, and federal laws governing the workplace, including wage-and-hour compliance, disciplinary matters, recruiting and training, workplace accommodations, and leaves of absence.
