Industry, CA Employment Discrimination Attorneys
As the name has it, Industry, California is an industrial city located just outside of Los Angeles. Industry is home to over 2,500 businesses and in excess of 80,000 jobs, but only has about 200 residents. Businesses in Industry range from large fortune 500 companies to small manufacturers and everything in-between.1
With all the jobs in Industry, there inherently will be times when employers mistreat or discriminate against their employees. Based on statewide statistics, it's estimated that in 2012 there were over 40 cases of employment discrimination cases filed by employees in Industry, and in the entire state of California it is estimated that just under 20,000 cases were filed.2
These numbers are mind blowing to some, but the statistic that isn't measured through them is the number of employees who are mistreated and never speak up for help. Everyday hundreds if not thousands of employees throughout California are mistreated and discriminated against, but they don't know where they can turn for help or they are fearful that if they step forward they will be retaliated against or lose their job.

She was ultimately terminated from her job, and we fought for her ultimately having a jury award her with a $9,100.000.00 whistleblower verdict.
