OAKLAND, Calif., May 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Stockton, California, and Sacramento, California. Both offices were opened in late April of this year, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recently, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order giving enhanced protections to Essential Workers from COVID-19.
Pacific Workers' core clients are Essential Workers —Firefighters, Peace Officers, Health Care Workers, and other frontline workers. Governor Newsom's order creating a presumption for workers' compensation coverage for Essential Workers has driven demand for more representation for the clients we serve.
Pacific Workers' already represents clients throughout Northern California, covering every Workers' Compensation Appeals Board and all Civil Courts.
"We were seeing more and more calls from essential injured workers throughout both of these areas," said Bilal Kassem, Managing Attorney of Pacific Workers'. "We simply want to better serve our clients and their families with a physical presence in these areas."
The new Stockton and Sacramento offices are likely temporary spaces until Pacific Workers' finds more permanent space.
Pacific Workers' has always valued the communities it serves, supporting various community organizations that help the most vulnerable. Pacific Workers', through the self-funded Pacific Workers' Foundation, donates and assists with manpower for various organizations such as the Oakland 55 Firefighters Union and the non-profit organization Best Buddies.
Currently, Pacific Workers' has decided to donate 5000 masks to community organizations, to get free reusable masks to the most vulnerable.
As the company expands its presence in Northern California, it will continue to reach out to more organizations that help the most vulnerable of our society and continue to contribute.
