Rhonda Canby is a member and former leader of the firm's Labor and Employee Benefits Practice Group. She advises private and public sector clients on a full range of employment law matters, including drafting handbooks and policies, preparing contracts and severance agreements, teaching supervisor workshops, conducting investigations, advising on discipline and termination and defending complaints initiated by both public agencies and private individuals. She has a background in complex business litigation and provides advice on a wide variety of business matters, including those involving intellectual property.
Having finished law school in the same year that the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed, Rhonda has developed a special expertise in the complex legal requirements for the accommodation of individuals with disabilities. Because of Rhonda's expertise in the area, she has represented many companies in litigation involving disabled workers. In addition, she regularly advises employers about how to successfully complete the "interactive process" for responding to employee requests for accommodation--a process often complicated by conflicting laws regarding workers compensation, pregnancy and family medical leave issues. Rhonda has also represented the University of California in several cases involving graduate students with alleged disabilities. Over the past ten years, Rhonda has also defended scores of retail establishments, financial and educational institutions, medical clinics, hotels, gas stations, restaurants and other "public accommodation" businesses against lawsuits stemming from allegations that individuals visiting the facilities encountered barriers to physical access. She is presently lead counsel for a chain of hospitals defending a nationwide class action matter. She also serves as an arbitrator and mediator in matters involving the ADA, both by private appointment and by designation of the U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of California.
Martindale Hubbell has awarded Rhonda its highest rating, AV. Having argued many cases before both the Ninth Circuit and the California Courts of Appeal--several of which resulted in published opinions--she has been recognized as an outstanding appellate lawyer in the 2007, 2008 and 2009 editions of Northern California Super Lawyers. Rhonda was honored to spend her first two years out of law school working as the law clerk for The Honorable Wallace P. Carson, Jr., then Chief Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court.
