Aimee N. Kircher is a Partner in the Fresno office and a member of the firm’s Employment Law practice group.  She represents business entities and management throughout California on employment matters and serves as outside general counsel for property management organizations.  

Aimee’s employment counseling practice focuses on risk mitigation and litigation prevention, as well as strategic human resources solutions for employers throughout California.  She provides day-to-day advice and strategic counsel to executive leadership, middle management and human resources teams on hiring practices; harassment, discrimination and retaliation prevention; performance management; proper classification of employees; wage and hour compliance; leaves of absence; interactive process requirements and reasonable accommodation analysis involving protected disabilities in the workplace; strategic planning and restructuring; employment-related due diligence in asset/stock sales; corrective action and terminations.  She has extensive experience preparing employment agreements, settlement agreements and releases, employee handbooks and other employment-related policies. Aimee also performs, oversees and trains management on effective workplace investigations.

Aimee’s employment litigation practice focuses on the investigation, negotiation and resolution of pre-litigation employment claims and administrative charges; and employment-related mediation/ dispute resolution.  She has effectively represented clients in investigations and administrative proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, California Civil Rights Department (formerly California Department of Fair Employment and Housing), Workers Compensation Appeals Board, Employment Development Department, and DIR/DLSE Bureau of Field Enforcement - Public Works.  She also provides, on behalf of her clients, oversight of insurance defense counsel and/or outside litigation counsel assigned to single plaintiff litigation defense, PAGA actions, and class actions.

Before venturing into the law, Aimee was the Head of Human Resources and a member of the executive leadership team of a multi-state, multi-location group of companies supplying the marketplace with environmentally responsible lumber and timbers.  Prior to that, Aimee gained valuable business operations experience in store operations management for a national retailer after having been recruited to their management training program.  This unique combination of legal, human resources and business operations experience has enhanced Aimee’s ability to link business strategies to employment and people strategies. She has spent her career operationalizing compliance with employment laws and business goals and has a strong track record of identifying and resolving complex people, legal, and operational issues in collaboration with other stakeholders.

In each of her roles, Aimee has provided practical, persuasive, preventative advice and counseling involving all aspects of the employer-employee relationship to businesses across a wide range of industries including property management, retail, manufacturing and distribution, medical, dental, food and beverage, private education, cosmetology, public works, and professional services. She has specific experience auditing workplace practices and advising organizations with small, inexperienced or start-up human resources teams that have large human resources challenges or lack basic infrastructure.
