San Francisco Employment Lawyers

Your Employer Will Have a Lawyer. Shouldn't You?

In most workplace disputes, the employees involved are not fully aware of their rights. It's understandable; employment law can be extremely complex. Without legal counsel, it is unlikely that an employee can stand up for his or her rights successfully.

Walker, Hamilton, Koenig & Burbidge provides experienced employment law representation. Attorney Peter Koenig, one of the firm's partners, handles our employment law practice. He can help you navigate employment law and workplace discrimination cases, ensuring that you meet the strict filing deadlines.

State and Federal Employment Law Representation

Federal and state laws prohibit employment decisions - such as hiring, firing, promotion or disciplinary action - that are based on sex, age, race, religion, disability or participation in employee rights' programs. We can help you with discrimination and other claims involving issues such as:

  • Workplace discrimination
  • Sexual harassment
  • Age discrimination
  • Race and national origin discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Religious discrimination
  • Wrongful termination and employer retaliation
  • Whistleblowing
  • Workers' compensation
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Breach of contract
  • Wage and hour violations

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) have numerous regulations you must follow to file a complaint against an employer. Attorney Koenig knows California and federal employment law, and will guide you through the process of filing complaints, attending hearings and appealing decisions, when necessary.
