Employment Law For Information Technology (IT) Professionals

Proven Representation For IT Professionals In Irvine, San Diego, Palo Alto, Long Beach, Los Angeles And All Of California

Since 2001, Garay Law has served as a premier resource for IT professionals facing overtime issues and other employment law matters. We know that those in IT do not often get to work typical “9-to-5” hours. When you have an IT job, you typically need to work late, work through the weekend when upgrades or data migration becomes necessary, and stay on call and be prepared to address technology emergencies at a moment’s notice. Due to the long hours that IT positions require, it is vital for you to understand whether you have been properly classified as exempt or if you are actually nonexempt and eligible for overtime pay.

When you contact our firm, we will thoroughly analyze your job duties and day-to-day activities. These are the things that California law looks to determine exempt/nonexempt status — not your job title or your employer’s classification of your job.

Our talented attorneys have helped those in a wide range of IT positions, including:

  • Associate desktop systems specialist
  • Associate IT remote support specialist
  • Associate systems administrator
  • Customer support manager
  • Desktop systems specialist
  • IT Rremote support specialist

Even if your job is not listed above, we may be able to help you. We can give you an honest assessment of whether your job is properly classified or whether you are improperly classified and should pursue a wage and hour claim to recover back overtime pay for all of your hard work.
