Biography

Brad S. Kane has practiced law for more than twenty years in California, Washington, and Alaska. After a decade-long career in “Big Law,” in 2001 Mr. Kane started the Kane Law Firm, a Los Angeles-based practice. Mr. Kane takes a unique, humanistic approach with clients, always keeping the client engaged in their case and counseling clients toward fair and reasonable solutions to often emotional and complex problems.

The Kane Law Firm follows Mr. Kane’s interdisciplinary approach to law and avoids the often myopic “over-specialization” or one-sided thinking caused by only representing one side to a particular kind of dispute. For example, Mr. Kane regularly counsels and represents small and medium sized employers on the handling of employee disputes, while also representing aggrieved employees with serious claims against their own employers.

As a result, Mr. Kane is constantly searching for outside the box solutions to litigation and negotiations in areas spanning employment law, entertainment, insurance coverage, as well as business and corporation litigation. In fact, Mr. Kane has a reputation amongst his associates and colleagues of “taking cases no one else would take” and turning them into gold.

Finally, Mr. Kane has an unshakable faith in our justice system derived from his experience clerking for Alaska Supreme Court Chief Justice Jay A. Rabinowitz, his experience as a lawyer, and serving over 250 times as a Judge Pro Tem. To Mr. Kane, the judicial system holds a unique ability to shape a person’s world view and how people see themselves. Mr. Kane earned his J.D. from Hastings College of the Law and his B.A. in history from University of California Los Angeles.

Legal Answers
Q. In California I had 12 hours in a single day from two separate shifts grave then swing am I entitled to overtime?
A: Your question is complicated. First, the general rule is overtime after 8 hours or 40 hours per week, though different rules apply to certain job categories. In addition, California permits alternative work weeks like 4 days with 10 hours per day without payment of overtime if there is a valid employee election selecting that schedule. Critically, employers may not unilaterally impose an alternative work schedule without incurring overtime liability. Second, the employer is allowed to set the start of the work day. In the absence of the employer setting the start time is 12 midnight. Thus, if you hit 12 hours within the work day, you should be entitled to overtime.
Q. Can a company deduct accrued time in increments of an hour on the hour if you're late or leave early during your shift?
A: A company may have a rounding policy, but it must be neutral. Here the policy does not appear neutral. This means you and your co-workers are being cheated on your hours. There may be a possible class action or Private Attorney General Act claim. You should consult with an employment lawyer. Most provide free consultations.
Q. Company forced 1 hour lunch breaks on me when I was only taking 30 minutes with no breaks
A: An employer can require employees to take a 1 hour unpaid lunch break. If you are working during your lunch break, you must be paid for your time working, but you can be disciplined and even terminated for insubordination.
