Mr. Zilberman works with employers to find practical, cost-effective strategies to their workforce problems. Mr. Zilberman has broad experience resolving potentially explosive employment law issues before they escalate. Clients rely on Mr. Zilberman's creative strategies to solve complex employment matters within the framework of their business goals. He advises clients on a broad range of employment issues, such as Title VII, ADA, ADEA, FMLA, and WARN; drafting and analyzing employment and non-compete agreements; developing and implementing personnel policies and procedures; hiring, firing and managing employees; conducting internal sexual harassment, whistleblower and misconduct investigations; conducting "best practices" audits and management trainings; handling DOL investigations; and defending discrimination claims before the EEOC, DFEH and other state administrative agencies. Mr. Zilberman has an active litigation practice, representing employers in breach of contract, wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, harassment, whistleblower, and non-compete actions, as well as wage and hour class actions. He practices regularly in federal and state courts, in private mediation and arbitration proceedings, and before the EEOC and equivalent state administrative agencies. In 2007, Mr. Zilberman was named by the San Diego Metropolitan Magazine to its annual list of Top 40 under 40, recognizing his professional and civic accomplishments. In 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013, Mr. Zilberman was honored as one of San Diego s Top 10 Employment Lawyers by the San Diego Daily Transcript. Since 2010, Mr. Zilberman was also recognized as a San Diego Super Lawyer, an honor bestowed on only the top 5% of attorneys in the state, as selected by his peers.
