Glendale, CA Employment Discrimination Attorneys
The third largest city in LA County, Glendale has a population of nearly 192,000 residents and is home to a booming economy. The city's primary industry is retail, with several dozen large retailers having locations in Glendale making up over 10,000 jobs! Several large corporations have offices or headquarters in Glendale as well, making up over 25,000 jobs!1
Whether you work in the retail industry or any other industry in Glendale, you may at some point be mistreated or discriminated against by your employer. In fact, based on statewide statistics, it is estimated that over 100 cases of employment discrimination are filed each year by residents of Glendale, and nearly 20,000 cases are filed statewide in California .2
While there certainly are a large number of cases filed, in reality the number of employees actually discriminated against is dramatically higher. Very few employees who are mistreated or discriminated against in the workplace ever come forward to seek justice against their employer for fear of further retaliation or even termination. But, if you're discriminated against or mistreated, the law is on your side.
