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. How can I do to demand unpaid tips from waiters for my work assisting asbusser as it is stated in the restaurant policy?
A: DO NOT FIGHT WITH OTHER EMPLOYEES. YOU CAN BE TERMINATED AND/OR GET HURT.

If someone threatens you, take out your phone and film them.

Be careful what you say - do not threat anyone with harm.

The employer has the obligation to enforce the written tip sharing policy.

Your claim is against the employer, not the servers.

You should put your request in writing and send it the human resources department or the general manager.

If they take retaliatory action for asking for your share of tips, you may have an additional claim for retaliation.

If the employer fails to act, you can file a complaint with the Labor Commissioner or hire a lawyer to assist you.
Q. What can I do about racial comments from my manager at work
A: First, you should also keep a written log of each comment by date, time, what was said and the circumstances, including where it happened and who was present. This information will be very important in any legal claim.

Second, you should make a written complaint about the racial comments in writing to your company's human resources department or a senior executive, if there is no HR department.

Third, you should consult an employment lawyer to make sure your written complaint hits all the right notes and specifically mentions racial discrimination and harassment.

Hopefully, the company will fulfill its obligation to protect you from racial harassment and discrimination. However, if the manager of the company retaliates against you for your complaint will have an additional claim. ... Read More
Q. I am a salaried administrative employee in California. My employer is a small business (fewer than 10 employees).
A: Under Labor Code 515(a), to be exempt executive, administrative, and professional employees must earn "a monthly salary equivalent to no less than two times the STATE minimum wage for full-time employment."

The 2024 California state minimum wage is $16.00/hour, which means you must earn at least $32 per hour for 49 hours per week or a monthly salary of over $5,546.67 per month.

The exemption test applies per pay period, so an annual bonus pulling you over the required annual salary of $66,560 would only make you potentially exempt during the pay period you received the bonus.
