Dedicated New Mexico Attorney Handles Workplace Discrimination

Persistent lawyer fights unfair employment practices in the Albuquerque area

As an employee, you have the right to equal consideration for employment and treatment by employers. If your rights have been denied, Pia Gallegos Law Firm, P.C. will take action. On behalf of workers in the Albuquerque area, I hold employers accountable when they discriminate in their hiring, promotion and compensation practices. No employee should be singled out or passed over based on personal characteristics or their decision to report employer wrongdoing. I help clients throughout New Mexico to seek compensation for the pain and difficulties they have been subjected to by discriminatory employers.

Informed New Mexico counselor strives to enforce equal employment opportunity laws

If you believe you were barred from employment, passed up for promotion or otherwise treated unequally in your workplace due to your physical condition, identity or stance against inappropriate behavior, you may be able to make a valid discrimination claim. Federal laws prevent employment discrimination based on:

  • Retaliation
  • Disability
  • Race
  • Sex
  • Age
  • National origin
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Pregnancy
  • Genetic information
  • Sexual harassment
  • Equal pay/compensation

Additional protections for employees may be offered at the state level. Because laws are always shifting in regard to this area, it is best to contact a knowledgeable employment attorney to advise you on how current federal and New Mexico laws apply to your case.

At Pia Gallegos Law Firm, P.C., I carefully examine the details of your situation and advise you on whether or not your discrimination claim is likely to hold up in the eyes of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the national agency that exists to enforce anti-discrimination laws, or in subsequent civil litigation.

Experienced lawyer helps wronged workers seek justice and compensation

Discrimination can take a serious toll on the people it affects, from limiting career and financial opportunities to causing substantial psychological stress. I listen to my clients' needs so I can seek the forms of remedy and compensation that are fitting for their experience.  I represent clients who have suffered discrimination in the form of:

  • Unequal pay
  • Unequal benefits
  • Harassment
  • Job loss
  • Missed promotion opportunities
  • Unfair hiring

I am a strong advocate for New Mexico workers and will try to resolve your case out of court, so that you can seek a favorable settlement without the necessity of a trial. If a courtroom appearance becomes necessary, I will represent you with persistence and conviction.
