Los Angeles started out in 1781 as a small farming community established by 14 families who traveled together for 1,000 miles across the southwest looking for better opportunities. Today, the City of Angels is the second-largest city in America, with enormous, banking, aerospace, healthcare, tourism, and entertainment industries. L.A. is also the largest manufacturing center on the West Coast, with over 500,000 people working to build apparel, computers, metal, furniture, cars, heavy machinery, and more.
Workplace Discrimination in Los Angeles
While there are many great career opportunities in L.A., employers and managers unfortunately still do not seem to understand that their most important assets are their people, and employees are disturbingly discriminated against often.
Many workers don’t understand when their rights are being violated, and have no idea just how much they could benefit from speaking to an employment discrimination lawyer. Los Angeles had an 2,200 workers filed employment complaints in 2017, representing nearly a quarter of all the complaints filed in the State of California that year. But these numbers fall far short of the truth, as thousands more employees in Los Angeles suffer through workplace harassment and never report it. They fear being fired or treated even worse than they already are, and they don’t know they have options.
