HomeAttorney TeamRachel Bien
Rachel is an experienced litigator who primarily represents workers in class and collective actions seeking unpaid wages and other damages under state and federal law.

She has litigated and settled many cases involving workers who were misclassified by their employers as exempt from overtime or labeled as “independent contractors” and denied wages and other employment benefits. She has won motions against large corporations, and consistently advocates for interpretations of the law that advance the rights of all workers, including those who are most vulnerable to abuse. In addition to her trial court work, Rachel is an experienced appellate court litigator.

Before joining O&S in 2020, Rachel was a partner at Outten & Golden LLP, a plaintiff-side employment firm based in New York City, with offices in California and Washington, D.C.  At Outten & Golden, Rachel was co-head of the firm’s class action practice group.

Rachel is an active member of the employment law bar.  She is a member of the National Employment Lawyers Association (“NELA”) and NELA’s California affiliate, the California Employment Lawyers Association (“CELA”).  Rachel is also on the Board of the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation, a non-profit created by and for restaurant workers.
