Ashley (Chinh) Huynh has built her expertise over 20 years as a legal, business, and human resource leader for start-ups, mid-sized organizations, and Fortune 100 companies. As the founder of The HR Attorney, she provides HR/employment law advice and counsel to small and mid-sized businesses and non-profits. She is also the founder of BEDR Inc., which provides consulting services on a variety of complex human resource matters.
As a licensed California employment attorney and holder of the prestigious HR certifications, PHR and SHRM-CP, she is skilled in a wide range of HR/employment areas. Ashley advises clients while keeping in mind that the employer’s priority is maintaining the value of their workforce. To aid employers in minimizing the risk of litigation and maximizing efficiency, she helps assess and improve how each organization conforms to California’s strict employment laws.
As a business-minded advocate, she counsels clients across a variety of industries on proactive compliance with employment statutes and on the development of employment policies. In addition, she assists clients with internal investigations or provides external investigations, while providing risk management counseling.
Ashley earned her J.D. from Southwestern University School of Law. Her previous experience includes an externship for an administrative law judge at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) where she reviewed cases files and prepared legal summaries on Title VII discrimination complaints. She is also participating in the EEOC Pro Bono Mediation Program. In addition, Ashley has received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a specialization in Business Administration from UCLA.
She counsels on an array of matters in her law firm and HR consulting businesses including, workplace investigations, sexual harassment prevention, diversity and inclusion initiatives, HRIS & time clock implementations, employee and management training, family care and medical leave laws, HR and employment practices audits, talent acquisition and recruitment, California legislative compliance, negotiating employment claims, employment law compliance, hiring process development, performance management, employment agreements, unemployment hearings, severance agreements, employee handbooks, workforce reductions, policy development, violence prevention, termination reviews, and background checks.
Conducting an impartial workplace investigation that provides appropriate remedial measures is key in protecting your business. When you need an external investigator which by law (see Cal. Business and Professions Code Section 7520 et seq.), must be either an attorney or private investigator, contact our team of highly experienced employment attorneys who know how to strike the right balance that provides an impartial investigation with a human touch. We specialize in sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation investigations.
Unlike a Human Resources Audit by an HR Consultant, our audits are conducted by employment attorneys with the protection of attorney-client privilege. As we have expertise in legal and human resources, our audits will include a thorough compliance audit from both perspectives that will ensure peace of mind for your business. We specialize in Wage & Hour Audits, as a proactive measure or in preparation for litigation, partnering with businesses and law firms that support them.
We analyze, negotiate, and prepare employment-related agreements including arbitration agreements, non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements, independent contractor v. employee analysis and drafting of agreements, and negotiation and drafting of severance agreements.
