Shannon Jenkins, Partner

Shannon Jenkins’s litigation experience includes handling disputes primarily for the employer from pre-litigation negotiation through to a jury trial or bench verdict. She also works on individual and class action cases, administrative judicial forums including the Labor Commissioner, the Employment Development Department (EDD), the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), and alternative dispute resolution. Other litigation includes successfully defending sexual harassment claims, alleged discrimination assertions, breach of employment agreements, wage and hour disputes, breach of confidentiality agreements, breach of fiduciary duties, wrongful terminations, and all manner of related tort and contract claims.

Ms. Jenkins has hosted many employment law seminars and speaking engagements, examples of which include:

  • The Top Ten Things Employers Do Wrong
  • Best Practices In Employment Law
  • New Employment Law Cases and the Importance of Yearly Updates

Ms. Jenkins also provides non-litigation related but equally important preventive services such as required sexual harassment training and employer documentation. The latter includes how to prepare personnel forms correctly from pre-hire/hire/post-hire (including performance appraisals and work rules) all the way to “safe” termination.

To set herself apart from most employment lawyers, Ms. Jenkins (through her firm) offers the TLD Law Plus Plan to employer clients, which allows them unlimited telephone or e-mail access to her for a small, flat quarterly fee.
