Hawthorne, CA Employment Discrimination Attorneys
Hawthorne, California was first incorporated in 1922 and today has over 84,000 full time residents. Hawthorne is home to several large corporations, primarily in the entertainment and technology industries, and it's estimated that these industries alone employ over 2,500 employees in Hawthorne.1
Unfortunately employees who work or live in Hawthorne can be discriminated against and mistreated in the workplace just like anywhere else. Based on statewide California statistics, it is estimated that in 2012 there were over 45 cases of employment discrimination filed by residents of Hawthorne, and nearly 20,000 cases filed statewide in California.2
While these numbers may sound extremely high, the reality is only a small fraction of those mistreated and discriminated against in the workplace ever come forward to file a lawsuit. The rest either continue to put up with the mistreatment or seek employment elsewhere, usually because they don't know where to go for help.
