There is an immediate opening for a trial attorney in the Employment Litigation Division of the Civil Litigation Branch.
The Employment Litigation Division defends City departments and individual City employees in employment litigation brought by current and former employees. The Division’s practice has a strong focus on public safety employees (Police and Fire); however, the work includes a variety of cases from many City departments.
Most of the litigation involves California state law employment theories, especially those arising under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) and Labor Code § 1102.5 (the whistleblower statute).
