About Carolina

Carolina Schwalbach practices employment litigation, defending employers against a wide scope of claims before California state and federal courts and administrative agencies. She also advises clients on compliance with California and federal wage and hour laws, always keeping overarching business goals in mind and engaging a practical approach.

Schwalbach regularly defends employers in actions filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), and the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE), achieving favorable settlements and on many occasions, securing full dismissals.

As part of her practice Schwalbach also conducts internal investigations on a broad range of issues, including claims of sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination, and provides training to workforces regarding sexual harassment prevention, accommodation of disabilities in the workplace, and other employment matters. 

Carolina is a native Spanish speaker and regularly utilizes this skill in advising and defending clients on employment law matters.
