Baldwin Park, CA Employment Discrimination Attorneys
Baldwin Park, established in 1906, is a thriving community with over 75,000 full time residents currently undergoing a number of economic projects to bring more jobs to the area. The primary employers are in the retail industry, with several thousand jobs primarily at big-box retail stores. 1
No matter what type of job -- from entry level positions all the way to upper management -- workplace injustice and discrimination is a reality of today's workplace. In fact, it is estimated that residents of Baldwin Park filed over 40 cases alleging various types of employment discrimination in 2012, and that nearly 20,000 cases were filed statewide in California. 2
While these numbers may sound high, the actual cases of employee mistreatment and discrimination are in fact much higher. Most people who are mistreated and discriminated against never come forward for fear of retaliation or even losing their job. But the law protects such whistle blowers and our law firm is dedicated to helping you fight for your rights and receive compensation for any injustices committed against you in the workplace.

Our client was subsequently issued a letter of termination, and was wrongfully terminated based on his disabilities. Due to the employer's failure to accommodate our client and his disabilities, he was awarded a verdict of $650,001.00.
