About Daphne

Daphne P. Bishop is committed to helping employers navigate the intricate maze of employment law. To that end, Bishop has defended employers against class action lawsuits alleging violations of wage and hour laws, ranging from payment of wages, meal and rest breaks, and commission chargebacks. She has also represented employers in cases arising under anti-discrimination laws, including sexual harassment, retaliation, and discrimination based on age, race, sex, and disability. Bishop has also defended employers against other employment-related claims, such as wrongful termination, breach of contract, and whistle-blowing. Bishop has counseled employers on all aspects of employment law, as well.

Bishop has experience in almost every forum in California. Specifically, she has appeared in state and federal trial courts, including first-chairing two trials de novo and second-chairing a race discrimination trial. She has also represented employers before the California Labor Commissioner, the Workers Compensation Appeals Board, and the National Labor Relations Board. Additionally, Bishop has represented clients in private arbitrations and mediations.
