For over twenty years, Greg Mayeda has been a tireless advocate for employees navigating challenges in the workplace. He is passionate about empowering employees in the legal process and has helped his clients recover millions of dollars.
Greg’s experience runs the gamut, from representing employees in class action discrimination lawsuits to providing strategic advice in difficult work situations. He advises employees in the process of navigating Human Resources in cases of unfair disciplinary action and termination and negotiating better severance packages. Greg has fought vigorously for employees needing reasonable accommodations for mental/physical disabilities and battling workplace sexual harassment. He also helps employees challenge overtime misclassifications, enabling them to recover unpaid wages.
Greg is a Bay Area native. He grew up in Oakland and graduated from UC Berkeley and Hastings College of the Law. He became interested in fighting discrimination at a young age after learning about the Internment Camps of World War II and how his Japanese American father and immigrant grandparents lost their business while interned and struggled to find gainful employment after the War.
