George Abele is a partner in the Employment Law practice of Paul Hastings and is based in the firm’s Los Angeles office. He divides his practice among his employment litigation and advice, “disaster mitigation,” and appellate practices. Mr. Abele’s employment litigation and advice practice includes the representation of private and public employers in all aspects of employment law, including wage and hour class actions; wrongful discharge, discrimination, and sexual harassment litigation; traditional labor arbitrations; and private arbitrations. He has particular experience in wage and hour class actions and PAGA representative actions. Mr. Abele also helps lead the firm’s disaster mitigation practice, helping his clients undo or significantly reduce disastrous verdicts levied by California juries. His extensive appellate practice serves as a perfect complement to both practices. He is a frequent speaker on a variety of employment law topics.
