As of January 2018, nearly 1.6 million people were employed in San Diego1 and while many are satisfied with their work experiences, over 1,100 complaints were filed with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing for the region in 20172.

The actual number of workplace issues is far greater, because many workers never file a report due to a fear of retaliation. If you have experienced mistreatment in your workplace, contact a San Diego employment discrimination attorney at Shegerian & Associates to discuss your legal options.
