Employment Law

If you or someone close to you has endured mistreatment at work, it is important to realize that you have rights and options for recourse. It is not only unethical to discriminate or harass workers, but also illegal. Depending on your circumstances, you may be entitled to significant compensation for damages. That said, partnering with an experienced law firm is all but critical in these cases.

Our San Francisco employment law lawyers at Leigh Law Group are experienced in representing both public and private sector employees in a wide range of state and federal matters. Many of our clients are public school employees both certificated and non-certificated.

Our wide range of employment representation for both public and private employees includes representation of claims in court and administrative proceedings on matters such as wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment and various other statutory claims such as the fair and employment housing act, equal opportunity claims and the California labor code. Additionally we are prepared to work on cases involving:

  • Classified employees employment representation
  • Reduction in force proceedings
  • Teacher and classified employee dismissals and non-reelections
  • School district employees representation in administrative appeals of benefit

  • Changes/denials under CalPERS and CalSTRS
  • PERB hearings
  • Collective bargaining matters including appearing at arbitrations
  • Employee transfer negotiation
  • Classification and certification issues

We have dedicated our employment practice to protecting the rights of employees, exclusively. While we do not represent unions, our attorneys have extensive experience with these issues and can help you reach a best possible outcome to your issue; many times, employees who are members of a union will hire us directly and obtain results they may not have otherwise been able to. While a large portion of our employment law practice is dedicated to civil service employees, we are able to address issues for private employees as well.
