Job Discrimination Lawyer: GlendaleThe third largest city in LA County, Glendale has a population of a little over 200,000 residents. Its economy is also experiencing a boom and there is a lot of business activity and development. The city's primary economic sector is the retail industry. Several dozen large retailers have major locations in Glendale and consequently account for over 10,000 jobs! Additionally, several national corporations have offices or headquarters in Glendale and account for another 25,000 jobs.1 However, whether the economy is good or bad, and whether you work in the retail industry or any other industry in Glendale, you could still be mistreated or discriminated against by your employer. Based on statewide statistics, it is estimated that over 100 cases of employment discrimination are filed each year by residents of Glendale (with nearly 20,000 cases in the entire state).2 These numbers could decrease if you contact an employment discrimination lawyer -- Glendale needs to ensure all of its workers are being treated justly. While those statistics are, by themselves, a sign that change is needed, many suspect the actual number of mistreated employees is dramatically higher. This is because many employees who suffer maltreatment are too scared of retaliation to report or seek help. But, if you experience mistreatment and reach out to a job discrimination lawyer, Glendale has laws to protect you from retaliation.
