Employment Law

As a Berkeley employment law attorney, Spencer C. Young understands the issues employees face in the workplace today, and that the thought of filing a job discrimination or wrongful termination lawsuit can be intimidating.  Whether you are the victim of sexual harassment, have not been paid overtime wages or expenses you feel you are entitled to, our firm provides the outstanding legal guidance and support you deserve to help you make important decisions in regards to potential violations of your rights as a current or former employee.

Employees often fear that if they file a lawsuit against an employer or “rock the boat” in any way, they may be terminated, or their employer may make their life difficult. Regardless, we advocate on behalf of employees in Berkeley who have issues such as reimbursement of expenses, on-the-job injuries, who have been discriminated because of age, race, religious affiliations, sexual orientation, and more.  Whether you are considering a sexual harassment lawsuit, wrongful termination lawsuit, or believe you have grounds for a job discrimination lawsuit, we will thoroughly review your case to determine all of your legal options, and how best to proceed in order to reach your desired outcome.

As an experienced and skilled Berkeley employment law attorney, Spencer C. Young knows the lengths many employers will go to today to protect their own interests.  In fact, many employers classify employees in a way to avoid paying them overtime. Sexual harassment is also very common in the workplace, whether by those in positions of authority, or other co-workers.  It is against the law to discriminate against employees based on race, ethnicity, age, gender, and other factors – yet employers do it every day.  Unfortunately, many employees are afraid to speak up for themselves, or take action against their employers in fear of retaliation.  If you are considering a severance lawsuit or overtime wages lawsuit, we can provide the answers you need.

You do your job and should be paid fairly.  Unfortunately, this is not always how it works.  Employers are often most concerned about their own profits, rather than employee issues.

  • Has an employer violated your rights?
  • Have you been discriminated against?
  • Sexually harassed?
  • Wrongly terminated?

The employment law firm of Spencer C. Young will fight for the citizens of Berkeley and the Bay Area to ensure that you are treated fairly and if possible, compensated for your suffering or financial loss.

Personal Injury Law

In addition to employment law, our firm also handles personal injury cases in Berkeley and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Typically the biggest hurdle in a personal injury matter is getting the negligent individual or organization’s insurance company to fairly compensate the victim of the injury for their suffering, medical bills and missed work.

Bay Area residents are injured on a daily basis in car accidents, construction accidents, hazardous workplace conditions, slip and falls, and by poorly manufactured products. Due to traffic on our roadways and a growing number of people using bicycles on the roads, there are also many bicycle and pedestrian accidents.

If you or someone you know has been injured due to the negligence of someone else, please call the law offices of Spencer C. Young today to schedule a consultation. We have a successful record of achieving favorable verdicts and settlements for Bay Area injury victims and we will fight for your rights.
