Workplace Harassment Law

When you go to work, you should be allowed to do your job without being harassed by your co-workers. Harassment is against the law, and employers have a responsibility to implement and enforce policies to prevent harassment. Unfortunately, many California employers allow harassment to continue, making little or no effort to stop it.

Many people are hesitant to report harassment for fear of losing their jobs or some other form of retaliation. If you are being harassed on the job, you should speak to a lawyer who can help you understand your rights and work to see that those rights are protected. At Garay Law, our San José workplace harassment attorneys have experience handling all types of these cases. We have a particularly strong reputation in the area of harassment claims on behalf of workers in high-tech industries.

Working To Protect Employees In Any Workplace Harassment Case

Proving harassment in the workplace can be extremely difficult because there can sometimes be a “conspiracy of silence” among the perpetrators and others inside the company. We conduct a complete investigation into your case. We review all relevant documentation regarding the incidents you have reported as well as any incident reports or other documentation that can help us establish a pattern of behavior on the part of your harassers.

We have experience handling all types of workplace harassment claims, including:

  • Sexual harassment, including unwanted sexual advances and retaliation for refusing sexual advances
  • Harassment based on race or national origin
  • Harassment based on sexual orientation or gender identity
  • Harassment based on disability
  • Harassment based on religion
  • Harassment after reporting illegal activity by your employers
  • Harassment can come in many forms, including name-calling, workplace bullying, offensive jokes, pranks and the display of offensive images or material. No matter what type of harassment you may be facing, we will fight to end it and work to ensure that your rights are protected.
