Legal Question in Employment Law in California

Opposing counsel has requested to depose me (plaintiff). They did put the request for deposition on pleading paper. Can I decline until I have propounded my own discovery/interogatorries/ request for documents? Do we have to "take turns" with discovery or can we propound concurrently?

No, you cannot postpone your deposition until you have propounded your own discovery.

The parties can propound discovery concurrently, unless a court order in your case explicitly states otherwise. These orders are not issued, unless a party makes a motion for a protective order requesting it.
