    • Hoge Fenton, a venerable multi-service law firm headquartered in downtown San Jose, has an immediate opening for a junior to mid-level (2-5 years) associate for our Employment Law group with experience in employment law and a demonstrated interest in providing advice and counsel to clients. Previous experience advising clients with respect to hiring, terminations, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, trade secrets, managing employees, leaves of absence, and wage and hour law; drafting employee handbooks, nondisclosure agreements, arbitration agreements, and separation agreements; and litigating with respect to wrongful termination, class and representative actions, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour, and breach of contract are preferred.
