Labor Market Research

The use of the right expert witness in a litigated case can influence the value of your case or can make the difference between winning and losing. Mae Lon Ding, President of Personnel Systems Associates, provides expert witness and consulting services in the following types of cases:

She brings a unique perspective and knowledge of pay, personnel, and employment practices to a case which is not provided by the typical economist or accountant. She is a nationally recognized expert in the survey and design of employee wages and benefits and has been a consultant in human resources management for over 20 years. She has been a university instructor, has had articles published in many professional journals, has been a speaker at national conferences, and is author of a book used by virtually every major consulting firm in her profession. She has been quoted in the Orange County Register, the Chicago Tribune, and Working Woman Magazine. Her experience "in the trenches" with actual business practices combined with a masters degree in business gives her financial analysis skills, industrial analysis skills, and a unique knowledge of industry pay and benefits practices.

Ms. Ding's work with plaintiffs and defendants includes cases involving major national organizations, such as Pacific Bell, RB Furniture, and City of Long Beach. Law firms she has successfully worked with include Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro; Littler, Mendelson, Fastiff & Tichy; Contos & Bunch; and Sanders, Barnet, Jacobson, Goldman & Mosk. As an expert witness, Ms. Ding can make determinations concerning the following:

What is the value of past and future lost wages and benefits due to personal injury or death?

What were the employment opportunities for the plaintiff following injury or termination?

What is a reasonable length of time it should take the plaintiff to find employment given a specific occupation and industry?

Is the corporation's pay level for executives "reasonable" and reflective of "going market rates" for similar work and qualifications?
