Employment litigator Kayla Delgado Grundy blends creativity and tenacity to fiercely protect her clients.
Companies are often unwittingly out of compliance, particularly those which operate in states such as California, which have rapidly evolving, employee-friendly regulations. To prevent individual discrimination or harassment allegations from spiraling into class actions, Kayla finds innovative solutions to quickly and quietly resolve such matters. She applies that same finesse when handling highly sensitive trade secret matters, which also require quick and decisive action to preserve her client’s reputation.
In addition to resolving problems before they escalate, Kayla also helps clients succeed in litigation when necessary. Undaunted by opposing counsel, government agencies or difficult fact patterns, she successfully defends clients from a variety of employment claims in state and federal court. Kayla has particular expertise in defending against large-scale class actions, including those based on systemic discrimination and pay equity claims or on wage and hour claims.
Kayla has an active pro bono practice where she counsels local non-profit organizations and helps navigate difficult employment issues so that the leaders of those organizations can focus on fulfilling their purpose and providing services to the community.
