New California Employment Laws for 2020
Alex Guerra, an Associate in the Sacramento Office, is a member of the Employment Law & Litigation Group.
Alex focuses her practice on employment litigation and counseling. Alex defends employers in class action, multi-plaintiff, and single
plaintiff lawsuits on a variety of issues, including discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, misclassification,
and wage-and-hour claims. Orrick's Employment Law & Litigation group was recently named Labor & Employment Department of the Year in California by The Recorder in recognition of their significant wins on behalf of leading multinational companies on today's most complex and challenging employment law matters.
Before joining Orrick, Alex was active in California politics. She helped manage presidential, congressional, and supervisorial campaigns and held leadership positions within the youth arm of a major political party. Alex also interned for high-ranking members of the legislature, to include the Majority Whip of the California State Assembly and the President pro Tempore of the California State Senate. These experiences put Alex in a position to understand the complexity of California’s employment laws and the varied interests motivating these policies.
