Lebec, California is actually a beautiful place. This is a mountain community in Southwest Kern County, in the Tejon Pass. Every so often I travel to Lebec to take depositions at a Holiday Inn Express.
Today in Lebec I deposed several managers in a whistleblower case in which my client questioned why his time entries were deleted, threatened to go to the Labor Board if this happened again, and was fired a few business days later.
There were also issues with reporting time pay which requires non-exempt employees to be paid at least two hours if they show up for a work shift.

A number of national companies have come into Lebec. These employers are there to profit. It is difficult to find employees to work in rural areas. Unfortunately, our employment lawyers have seen quite a few cases of unfit employees being hired to work in Lebec. These employees then engage in sexual harassment, schemes to retaliate, and not pay wages.
While our law firm has an office in Bakersfield, our main office is in Sherman Oaks, a suburb of Los Angeles. We are big enough to go up against nationwide employers such as Starbucks, McDonald’s, Dollar General, Chipotle, Schneider, Panda Express, Jack, In-N-Out Burger, Del Taco, Subway, Motel 6, Carl’s Jr., Quiznos, Exact Staff, Denny’s, and other billion dollar plus corporations. We have also taken on regional employers such as Clinica Sierra Vista, Griffith Company, and Tejon Ranch. Many clients believe it is better that we do not live in Lebec. That removes the fact we, family, or friends might know the supervisor who caused the employment problem, or we frequent the employer you need to sue.
