Labor Law

Under both California and federal law, employers and employees have rights and obligations. At The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer, our attorneys represent businesses of all sizes that are bringing their human resources management into full compliance. We also represent both private sector and public sector employees who have grievances against their employer or their places of work.

Sensible Labor Law Representation in California

No matter what your role, our firm’s experience and knowledge about California workplace disputes are at your disposal. Our attorneys have the ability and the confidence to review your individual situation, provide a legal opinion and assessment, investigate and develop the facts, and record and determine the best method by which to resolve the matter. The firm’s employment lawyers will work with you to determine which method — mediation, litigation, arbitration, administrative hearings, or negotiation — will be the best for you, given the situation.

Beyond the firm’s general employment and labor practice, the business lawyers at The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer also assist with union labor law issues. Each attorney at the firm provides the same level of support and counsel in matters involving rights under union labor contracts and dispute agreements, including the failure of a local to fairly represent a member’s interests, termination or layoff of union members, suspension, denial of a promotion or pay raise, access to training and career development, discrimination, sexual harassment, and other discipline at work. The firm provides outside legal opinions to locals and unionized employees throughout Santa Clara County and the Bay Area.
