Jason Barsantiís practice focuses on representing management interests in labor and employment counseling and litigation. Jason possesses extensive experience defending employers in all types of labor and employment matters with a particular emphasis on multi-plaintiff actions in state and federal courts nationwide. His representation on behalf of his clients in the agricultural, food service, transportation, education, healthcare, retail sales, and insurance industries includes the defense of complex wage and hour litigation; discrimination claims; workplace harassment, retaliation, and wrongful discharge claims; and actions predicated on breach of employment contracts.

In addition, Jason regularly counsels employers regarding compliance with state and federal laws and regulations including, in particular, the Fair Labor Standards Act and similar state wage and hour laws such as the California Labor Code, California Business and Professions Code section 17200, the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act, and the Illinois Minimum Wage Law. Jason also assists management in developing and implementing employment policies and has helped employers develop strategies, such as arbitration and class waiver programs, designed to avoid costly employment litigation.

Prior to joining the firm, Jason practiced law in California, where he represented both employees and management in complex employment actions, as well as consumer, interment care, antitrust, securities, and mass tort litigation. Jason also clerked for two Los Angeles Superior Court judges sitting on the Los Angeles County Complex Litigation Panel, where he worked on class and mass tort actions including consumer, securities, and wage and hour class actions.

Jason graduated from Northern Illinois University with a B.S. in Political Science and an emphasis in Public Administration. Jason later graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Pepperdine School of Law where he served as the Managing Editor of the Law Review. Jason is a member of the bar in both Illinois and California.
