Weinberg, Roger & Rosenfeld is looking for a Litigation Attorney to work on traditional labor and litigation matters. This includes wage and hour class actions and employee benefits litigation. Candidate must be committed to the principle that working people are entitled to the best of legal representation in an economy and social system that was not designed with them in mind.

Duties include all stages of litigation, union staff and steward trainings, advice to union representatives and officers, as well as appearances in arbitration and before various administrative agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and Public Employment Relations Board (PERB). Applicants should have at least two years of relevant experience, be detail-oriented and possess exemplary research, writing and analytical skills. Admission to the California bar is required; judicial clerkship is a plus.

Public Sector

The Public Sector team works collaboratively to provide legal support for unions that represent workers employed by a wide range of public entities and non-profit organizations, including cities, counties, educational institutions, medical centers, transit districts, and others. The ideal candidate has a demonstrated commitment to justice for working people.

Duties include litigating disputes before courts, the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB), National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and civil service boards; representing unions in labor arbitrations and in contract negotiations; delivering trainings for unions and workers; and providing advice and assistance on the topics of employment and labor law (including organizing, bargaining and striking), local and municipal law, and constitutional law. The attorney would also be expected to appear as a union advocate before local and statewide bodies, such as city councils and the state legislature. Admission to the California bar is required, though candidates who are awaiting Bar Exam results will be considered.
