California Discrimination Lawyers

One of the fundamental principles of the American dream is that all people have an equal opportunity to get a job, earn promotions, and make a better life for themselves and their families. Fulfilling that dream can be very difficult, however, when employers pass qualified people over, target them for termination for discriminatory reasons or outsource their positions.

Numerous California and federal laws protect employees against workplace discrimination of any kind. If you feel that you are being discriminated against at work, you should have your case reviewed by a qualified lawyer who can help you understand your rights. At Garay Law, our San José discrimination attorneys have successfully represented clients in a broad range of these cases. We have an especially strong reputation for our representation of employees in high-tech jobs. Approximately 20 percent of our clients have been victims of equal pay, gender, sex and age discrimination as a result of tech employers’ elimination of overqualified, tenured or highly paid employees.

Strong Representation For Victims Of Workplace Discrimination

Employers can discriminate in many ways. They can pass a person over for promotion, impose harsher punishment or terminate an employee for an infraction that only resulted in warnings for other employees and refuse special requests that are routinely approved for other employees. We fully investigate your case and work to show a pattern of behavior that proves discriminatory practices.

Our attorneys have experience handling all types of discrimination claims, including:

  • Gender or sex discrimination
  • Race discrimination
  • Age discrimination
  • Pregnancy discrimination
  • National origin discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Sexual orientation/gender identity discrimination
  • Religious discrimination
