Sawtelle is a neighborhood of the City of Los Angeles. Sawtelle is home to more than 40,000 residents. It covers almost three square miles, and encompasses the following zip codes: 90049, 90064, and 90025. Sawtelle was established in 1899 and named after a manager of the Pacific Land Company who was initially responsible for its development and promotion. The new community developed around the Pacific Branch of the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers when veterans’ families, as well as veterans themselves who were drawing relief, settled there. Most of Sawtelle thus grew up after the veterans home was established. Sawtelle existed as a separate city until 1922 when Sawtelle joined Los Angeles.
Sawtelle is noted for its thriving Japanese American community, busy restaurants and arthouse movie theaters. It has strong roots in Japanese American history. Within Sawtelle lies a Japanese American community and business district along Sawtelle Boulevard, between Santa Monica and Olympic Boulevards. These are remnants of a larger Japanese American presence in the area before the population was disrupted by World War II, when many were displaced by Japanese-American internment. In recognition of its historical heritage, the area was designated Sawtelle Japantown in 2015.

However, navigating this abundance of legal choices can be a challenging task, especially when it comes to critical matters like employment law.
When individuals in Sawtelle are confronted with serious legal issues, particularly those related to employment, the real challenge lies in discerning which lawyer is truly the right fit for their unique needs.

Featured Employment Case
Sullivan v. Oracle Corp., 662 F.3d 1265 (9th Cir. 2011)
Three employees, who were nonresidents of California but who performed some of their work for their employer in California, brought action against employer seeking damages under Labor Code and Unfair Competition Law (UCL) for failure to pay overtime. The United States District Court for the Central District of California, Alicemarie H. Stotler, J., granted summary judgment to employer. Employees appealed. The Court of Appeals certified questions to the California Supreme Court, 557 F.3d 979. The California Supreme Court, Werdegar, J., 51 Cal.4th 1191, 127 Cal.Rptr.3d 185, 254 P.3d 237, answered questions. The Court of Appeals, W. Fletcher, Circuit Judge, held that application of California Labor Code provision requiring California-based employer to pay overtime to out-of-state employees did not violate due process or dormant commerce clause. The Ninth Circuit certified the following questions of state law to the California Supreme Court: First, does the California Labor Code apply to overtime work performed in California for a California-based employer by out-of-state plaintiffs in the circumstances of this case, such that overtime pay is required for work in excess of eight hours per day or in excess of forty hours per week? Second, does § 17200 apply to the overtime work described in question one? Third, does § 17200 apply to overtime work performed outside California for a California-based employer by out-of-state plaintiffs in the circumstances of this case if the employer failed to comply with the overtime provisions of the FLSA? Sullivan v. Oracle Corp. (“Sullivan III ”), 557 F.3d 979, 983 (9th Cir.2009). The California Supreme Court agreed with the answers the Ninth Circuit had given in its original opinion to these three questions. Sullivan v. Oracle Corp. (“Sullivan IV ”), 51 Cal.4th 1191, 127 Cal.Rptr.3d 185, 254 P.3d 237 (2011). In answer to the first question, the Court concluded that California’s overtime law applies to the work described in the question that had been performed in California by nonresidents. Id. at 1196–1206, 127 Cal.Rptr.3d 185, 254 P.3d 237. In answer to the second question, the Court concluded that § 17200 applies to the work described in the first question. Id. at 1206, 127 Cal.Rptr.3d 185, 254 P.3d 237. In answer to the third question, the Court concluded that § 17200 does not reach Plaintiffs’ FLSA claims for work performed outside California under the circumstances of this case. Id. at 1206–09, 127 Cal.Rptr.3d 185, 254 P.3d 237.
