Jimmy Oh defends employers in high-stakes employment litigation. When a company’s core business model is threatened or their reputation is at risk, clients trust his attentive counsel and sense of urgency to protect their interests. In the past 15 years, Jimmy has represented numerous companies across the country in wage and hour class actions. He is one of a few litigators in the country to defend a class action at trial and win. He also regularly represents companies in high-exposure cases involving allegations of harassment, discrimination, retaliation, or wrongful termination brought by single-plaintiff employees at all levels of a company, including the C-suite.
When he’s not litigating cases, Jimmy counsels clients on proactive measures to ensure their employment practices comply with current or new workplace laws and regulations. For example, he has offered advice and training on how legalization of recreational and medical marijuana may affect a client’s workplace drug policies, disciplinary action policies, and accommodations process. He also has guided clients through reductions in force due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Before joining Epstein Becker Green, Jimmy was a shareholder at an international labor and employment firm, where he was on the Board of Directors. He has published numerous articles and presented on a variety of employment law topics, including wage and hour compliance, class action certification, and the impact of the legalization of cannabis on the workplace. He also speaks about developments in wage and hour class action law; Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) classification; the interplay between the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and workers’ compensation laws; internal investigations; and cannabis and the workplace.
