Workplace Legal represents large corporations, small businesses, startups, and high-level executives and professionals in complex labor, employment, and HR matters. We serve clients across California from offices in San Francisco, Oakland/East Bay, Orange County, and San Diego.
Employment Law Counseling and Litigation
Workplace Legal attorneys appear before state and federal courts, the California Labor Commissioner, and private arbitrators and mediators in single-plaintiff and class action cases involving wage and hour, PAGA, wrongful termination, breach of contract, Equal Pay Act, retaliation/whistleblower, and discrimination and harassment claims. In addition, Workplace Legal provides daily guidance to clients on all areas of HR and employment law, from creating compliant HR infrastructures to drafting executive employment agreements to advising on employee disability and discipline/termination issues to conducting executive severance negotiations.
Our Managing Shareholder, Jeffrey S. Sloan, is a former Equity Partner in one of the largest and most prestigious law firms in the country. He is also the former Co-Founder and Managing Partner of one of the most respected employment law boutique firms in San Francisco. Jeffrey brings to Workplace Legal almost 30 years of employment law expertise and, due to having founded and launched several startups, a business-owner’s sensibility and problem-solving focus.
This makes Workplace Legal unique. We approach every client and every matter from a business perspective because we’ve owned businesses too. We’ve launched companies, built HR infrastructures, and hired employees. Along the way, we’ve seen and done it all – from analyzing whether someone is an employee or independent contractor, to navigating complex leave of absence rules, to managing difficult employee terminations, to debating whether to settle or litigate an employee dispute, to choosing a law firm.
In short, we’ve walked in your shoes.
We understand your challenges.
And we can help.
With decades of HR and employment law expertise, and real-world business and management experience, Workplace Legal delivers smart, practical, and cost-effective HR and employment law solutions to help you succeed.
