Labor & Employment



Having worked with charter schools since the inception of the Charter Schools Act in 1992, the Young, Minney & Corr, LLP Labor and Employment team is exclusively qualified to represent charter schools in all areas of state and federal law compliance in this regard. Our team prides itself on not just providing sound legal guidance, but practical and preventative advice to assist our clients in effectively navigating their daily human resources challenges, as well as responding to more complex areas of potential liability. We have successfully defended the rights of charter schools on nearly every issue facing charter school employers in all labor and employment related forums from state and federal administrative agencies to the California Supreme Court.
