California Labor & Employment Law Review Publish Article By Andrew H. Friedman and Taylor Markey

May 7, 2019 – The California Labor & Employment Law Review – an official publication of the California Lawyers Association Labor and Employment Law Section – published an article authored by Andrew H. Friedman and Taylor Markey. Entitled “A Refresher on and Thoughts About Unconditional Offers of Reinstatement,” the Friedman/Markey article examines a legal stratagem (the so-called “unconditional offer of reinstatement” doctrine) used by employers who have violated the law to minimize the damages that they have to pay illegally treated employees and explains why the California Supreme Court should reject the doctrine and find that it is at odds with California’s strong public policy of eradicating employment discrimination.
