Job Discrimination Lawyer: La MiradaLa Mirada is listed as one of CNN Money Magazine's "Best Places To Live.” It is home to over 49,000 full-time residents and has a strong economy with jobs primarily in the manufacturing and education industries. In fact, there are over 3,000 jobs in these two industries alone in La Mirada.1 In today's workplaces, whether working in a factory, educational institution, or any other environment, employment discrimination and mistreatment are still common today. Based on California statistics for 2016, it is estimated there were over 25 legal cases alleging employment discrimination filed by residents of La Mirada, and nearly 20,000 cases filed statewide.2 And while more and more employment discrimination cases are being filed, these only represent a small fraction of the employees who are being treated unfairly on a daily basis.
