Attorney Profile

Daniel T. Ho has over twenty-one (21) years of experience prosecuting and defending employment litigation.  Mr. Ho practiced employment litigation at two renowned global law firms, after which he served for six years as Senior Litigation Counsel (Employment) with NBCUniversal. There, Mr. Ho handled broad responsibilities involving the defense of TV-related and corporate employment litigation.  Mr. Ho is also a former partner in a successful boutique employment law practice consistently ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the Best Law Firms in the country.

Mr. Ho serves as lead counsel in *both* the prosecution and defense of employment-related litigation. The claims generally involve, but are not limited to, allegations of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation under Title VII and the Fair Employment & Housing Act (FEHA); whistleblowing retaliation; disability discrimination and reasonable accommodation; employee misclassification; wage-and-hour disputes (including PAGA and class actions); and disputes involving non-solicitation and “anti-raiding” agreements.

Mr. Ho's broad experience gives him a unique perspective as an attorney - whether representing employees or employers. Because he has worked regularly with insurance carriers, Mr. Ho also also has a unique understanding as to the impact of EPL, D&O, and other insurance policies on employment litigation.

Scholarly Lectures/Writings

  • Employers commonly ignore the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), wrongly thinking that it protects only unionized employees. To the contrary, an employer taking adverse action against a non-union employee, or adopting a policy that the National Labor Relations Board finds unlawful under the NLRA, may subject the employer to serious consequences., NON-UNIONIZED EMPLOYEES AND THE NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS ACT, Attorney at Law Magazine, 2016
  • In Kilby v. CVS Pharmacy, the California Supreme Court attempted to clarify the meaning of the “suitable seating” requirement that the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement has promulgated in each and every one of its wage orders.  The requirement specifically states that, “All working employees shall be provided with suitable seats when the nature of the work reasonably permits the use of seats.”, YOU MEAN OUR BARTENDERS MUST BE GIVEN SEATS?, 2016
