Employment Discrimination

Nothing is more degrading than being discriminated against where you work. Baumgartner Law’s main focus is fighting back against bad employers. Unfortunately, most victims of discrimination at work have dealt with this illegal behavior for a long time.

Employment discrimination law is one of the most complex and lop-sided areas of civil rights law. The wrongful employer has an almost endless list of protections, and the process is so complicated that few attorneys even know the basics. There are filing pre-requisites, time limits, administrative exhaustion pre-requisites, and often, at the end of the line, there are damage recovery limits. Employment lawsuits simply cannot be handled alone, or even by the average attorney. When you have employment discrimination or wrongful termination case, your employer has retained experienced attorneys who know how to use the complex system against you. You should have an attorney who knows the system at least as well.

Employment discrimination comes in many different forms, including sexual harassment and racial discrimination. Unfortunately, many employers still tolerate sexual harassment and/or race discrimination in the workplace. They know that few employees take the crucial first step of reaching out to a discrimination attorney who knows how to fight back against sexual harassment and race discrimination. At Baumgartner Law, we dedicate our practice to vindicating victim’s civil rights, with an emphasis on sexual harassment and race discrimination.
