First incorporated in 1914, Beverly Hills is home to over 34,000 full time residents and is home to several large companies, primarily in the entertainment and hospitality industries. In fact, hotels in Beverly Hills employ over 4,000 employees and talent and entertainment agencies employ over 3,000 employees. 1
An unfortunate reality of workplaces today is that employees often experience first hand various types of discrimination and injustice on the job. Based on statewide statistics, it's estimated that in 2012 there were 18 cases of employment discrimination filed by residents of Beverly Hills, and nearly 20,000 cases filed in all of California. 2
However only a small fraction of those who are wronged in the workplace ever take action. Hundreds of thousands of other employees throughout California and right here in Beverly Hills are discriminated against or treated improperly in the workplace, some for years and even decades, and they don't know where to turn for help.
