Fierce Negotiator and great Trial Lawyer Brad Kane is a great attorney. He is very detail oriented and committed to understanding the facts of the case. I’ve always believed that in order to achieve something of monument you will almost definitely need support. Brad and his team of attorneys and para legals was exactly the support my family needed in order to achieve the positive outcomes in both a civil and family law matter. I have seen first hand his ability to negotiate and the level of preparation that he dedicates to going to trial. Thank you Brad for your help. My family owes you and your firm a great deal of gratitude for how you have fought and won our cases. If you are looking for a fierce negotiator that is equally if not more competent at trial then I suggest Brad and his firm. They may not be the largest firm but they are definitely quality attorneys. Thank you all again!

When you need an attorney to stand up for you, Brad is the man I turn to. I have had several occasions when I needed the help of a dedicated and expert attorney, someone courteous, forthright and honest, approachable and empathetic, responsive, and who won't give up until he has achieved the outcome you need. Attorney Brad Kane is the person I turn to for such help. He is a very persistent, persuasive and effective advocate on my behalf, and I feel lucky and grateful to have been recommended to Mr. Kane by a friend. I highly admire his work ethic, and I wholeheartedly recommend him as an attorney.

Biography

Brad S. Kane has practiced law for more than twenty years in California, Washington, and Alaska. After a decade-long career in “Big Law,” in 2001 Mr. Kane started the Kane Law Firm, a Los Angeles-based practice. Mr. Kane takes a unique, humanistic approach with clients, always keeping the client engaged in their case and counseling clients toward fair and reasonable solutions to often emotional and complex problems.

The Kane Law Firm follows Mr. Kane’s interdisciplinary approach to law and avoids the often myopic “over-specialization” or one-sided thinking caused by only representing one side to a particular kind of dispute. For example, Mr. Kane regularly counsels and represents small and medium sized employers on the handling of employee disputes, while also representing aggrieved employees with serious claims against their own employers.

As a result, Mr. Kane is constantly searching for outside the box solutions to litigation and negotiations in areas spanning employment law, entertainment, insurance coverage, as well as business and corporation litigation. In fact, Mr. Kane has a reputation amongst his associates and colleagues of “taking cases no one else would take” and turning them into gold.

Finally, Mr. Kane has an unshakable faith in our justice system derived from his experience clerking for Alaska Supreme Court Chief Justice Jay A. Rabinowitz, his experience as a lawyer, and serving over 250 times as a Judge Pro Tem. To Mr. Kane, the judicial system holds a unique ability to shape a person’s world view and how people see themselves. Mr. Kane earned his J.D. from Hastings College of the Law and his B.A. in history from University of California Los Angeles.

Q. Domestic partner lesbian relationship of 18 years 1 day of bereavement leave granted.
A: According to the California Department of Civil Rights,

If you work for an employer with five or more employees, you may be entitled to bereavement leave following the death of certain family members. Beginning January 1, 2023, private employers with five or more employees are required to grant an eligible employee’s request for up to five days of bereavement leave from work following the death of the employee’s family member. To be eligible for bereavement leave, an employee must have been employed for at least 30 days before taking the leave. Bereavement leave is also available to employees who work for the State of California2 and for local governments.

For which family members can I take bereavement leave? An employer is only required to permit the use of bereavement leave for the death of certain family members. Covered employers must allow you to take bereavement leave upon the death of your spouse, child, parent, sibling, grandparent, grandchild, domestic partner, or parent-in-law. However, an employer may voluntarily allow bereavement leave to be taken upon the death of another person with whom you have a relationship.

Q. I was terminated from my job while I was on disability leave due to high risk pregnancy.
A: Termination during your protected pregnancy leave raises serious questions. To be protected it is not required that you specifically ask for the FMLA/CRFA leave. It is enough that the employer knew of your circumstances requiring the leave to trigger your protections. Hopefully, you documented the situation in an email or other writing, like a text message.
Q. Can your employer make you sign a non disclosure when you quit or leave?
A: No. An employer cannot require you to sign a non-disclosure agreement, when you are fired or quit. If an employer wants to you voluntarily sign a non-disclosure agreement, the employer must provide consideration such as a severance payment.

However, an employer can require you to sign a non-disclosure for as a condition of employment, but it cannot prohibit you from disclosing illegal discrimination and harassment or illegal conduct.
