Thought Leadership

Anna Stancu is an associate in the Labor and Employment Practice Group in the firm’s Los Angeles office. 

Areas of Practice

Ms. Stancu specializes in advising and defending employers in nearly all aspects of labor and employment disputes.  She handles a wide range of matters, including those involving claims of discrimination and harassment based on race, national origin, age, sex, disability, and sexual orientation; wage and hour violations; independent contractor misclassification; wrongful termination in violation of public policy; whistleblower and other retaliation claims; breach of contract; unfair competition; defamation; and misappropriation of trade secrets.

Ms. Stancu advises and counsels her clients on employment issues including internal investigations, discipline and terminations, hiring practices, leaves of absence, the interactive process, reasonable accommodations, overtime exemption classifications, independent contractor/employee classifications, personnel policies, and other wage and hour compliance issues.  She has assisted her clients in responding to administrative claims.  She has conducted trainings for employees on compliance with the Fair Employment and Housing Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title VII, and other anti-discrimination/harassment/retaliation laws.

When she was a second-year associate, Ms. Stancu second-chaired a binding arbitration involving claims of race discrimination, wrongful termination, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, which ended in a complete defense verdict.
